I am Romaine Quinn... a small town guy who wants to make a positive difference in the area I live in!
Romaine Robert Quinn was born and raised right here in the 75th Assembly district. He attended St. Joseph Catholic School in Rice Lake and graduated from Rice Lake High School. During his senior year in High School, Quinn ran and was elected to the Rice Lake City Council. After serving for a year on council, he was elected Mayor of Rice Lake at just 19 years old. It was not long before Quinn realized he was called to public service.
Romaine graduated from Rice Lake High School and immediately began pursuing his passion!
Romaine is a proud alum of UW-Barron County, where he took classes while serving out his term as Mayor. After two years, Romaine attended UW-Eau Claire, but ultimately obtained his bachelor's degree in Political Science and Public Leadership from UW-Green Bay. As soon as Romaine graduated in May of 2014, he jumped back into public service and launched his bid for the 75th assembly district.
While working full time as a sales representative for Viking Coca Cola in Rice Lake, Quinn campaigned until dark every evening after work, plus weekends. Knocking on hundreds of doors, Romaine was able to share his common-sense, traditional conservative message to area voters. Although an underdog in the race, Quinn won in November of 2014 by a 55%-45% margin. In November of 2016, Romaine was outspent, yet won re-election by an even wider margin – 61%-39%. Serving as the youngest member in the State Assembly and already rising to a leadership position within the Republican Caucus, Romaine continues to be a target of statewide liberal groups that want him gone.
Although Romaine has accomplished much in his short 27 years, he considers marrying “the farmer’s daughter” his biggest accomplishment yet. Romaine and his wife Racquel currently live just outside of Barron, and look forward to raising their future family right in the heart of the 75th assembly district.
