A second Democrat has formally announced his run for Wisconsin’s 92nd Assembly District seat.

Max Hart, a 28-year-old banker and farmer from Black River Falls, is a Jackson County supervisor making his first run for state office.

In a news release issued Saturday, Hart said he “believe(s) in strong schools that are adequately funded and staffed” and supports “a vibrant University of Wisconsin System.” He favors international trade agreements and said he would work to foster rural revitalization.

“Being a farmer myself, I see the necessity for strong agriculture programs and markets,” Hart said.

Hart joins Rob Grover, a former Trempealeau County jailer and small business owner from Galesville who announced his candidacy in January.
