Devin LeMahieu has brought common sense, conservative principles to work representing the 9th Senate District in Madison. As a small business owner, former county board supervisor, and active community member, Devin possesses the experience, perspective, and commitment to public service necessary to keep moving Wisconsin forward.
Devin was born and raised in Oostburg, Wisconsin, attending Oostburg Christian School and Sheboygan County Christian High School. Devin graduated from Dordt College with degrees in Business Administration and Political Science. Since 2002, Devin has owned and published the Lakeshore Weekly, a publication in Sheboygan County with a circulation of over 4,500.
Serving the community has always been important to Devin. He is the past president of the Oostburg Kiwanis Club, and former member of the Oostburg Civic Pride Committee. Devin is a current member of the Oostburg and Sheboygan Chambers of Commerce. He is also an active member of Bethel Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Oostburg.
Devin also served his community as a member of the Sheboygan County Board for nine years. As a County Board Supervisor, Devin worked consistently to control county spending and accountability in local government during his roles on the Human Resources, Executive and Finance Committees. This helped lead to property tax cuts while strengthening core services.
Devin has consistently drawn on his experience as a small business owner, a former county board supervisor, and a legislative reformer throughout his service in the State Senate.
As a state legislator, he is known for being a champion for fiscal responsibility, cutting taxes, reforming the tax code, and improving government accountability as lead author of the REINS act which empowered the legislature to halt the costly executive-branch regulations which stifle private sector growth.
As Majority Leader, he guided the Senate through a tumultuous period in our state’s history and, along with his colleagues, crafted a historic, bipartisan budget that cut taxes by more than $3 billion–the largest tax cut in state history.
Despite the numerous challenges facing the state and the people of Wisconsin, Devin will continue to lead with common sense, conservative principles, and an unwavering commitment to advance the values of the 9th Senate District and the ideals that will ensure the people of Wisconsin are safer, freer, and more prosperous.
