Former Sen. Neal Kedzie, who had announced earlier this month that he was resigning from the Senate, will become the new president of the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association (WMCA). He will replace Tom Howells, who has been with the WMCA for 35 years.
Kedzie, a UW-Whitewater graduate and former Town Chairman, previously served in both houses of the Wisconsin State Legislature. First elected to the State Assembly in 1997 and later to the State Senate in 2002, he held leadership positions as Senate Assistant Majority Leader and Caucus Chair, as well as chairman of the Senate Natural Resources and Transportation Committees.
Prior to his time in the legislature, Kedzie worked for Wisconsin Electric Power Company as a Government Relations Representative and for Wisconsin Southern Gas Company as a Commercial/Industrial Coordinator in the marketing division. He is married with three adult children and resides in rural Elkhorn, Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association is a non-profit trade association representing the interests of truck and motor coach owners within the state of Wisconsin.
