Rhinelander City Council president to challenge Swearingen in 34th District
RHINELANDER – Eileen Daniel, Rhinelander City Council president and 18-year Rhinelander resident, has announced her candidacy to run against incumbent Rob Swearingen (R-Rhinelander) for the Wisconsin Assembly’s 34th District.
Along with a career in media and marketing, Daniel has also held leadership roles in a number of community and school non-profit organizations. According to a press release, these experiences, along with her time on city council, have given her the opportunity to talk to and work with people who consistently express frustration with the lack of initiative taken by the current representative. The issues she’s observed and discussed with her diverse network of small business owners, area leaders, parents, teachers, professionals, and young adults, have inspired her to seek this position in the Wisconsin Assembly.
If elected, the press release states, Daniel is “not afraid to put in the hard work” to get results.
“Someone once told me that if you want to get something done, ask a busy person,” Daniel said. “I guess that’s why people have no problem asking me for help when they need it. They know I’ll do everything I can to get it done.”
