InfoWisconsin has a long tradition of citizen representatives. The 1911 Legislature, for example, included 34 farmers, five merchants, four teachers, four union representatives, two lumbermen, one miller, one brewer, and one logger! Fred Clark is a citizen candidate in the best sense of that tradition. His experience, knowledge of Wisconsin and its people, and his commitment to the communities of south-central Wisconsin provide an excellent foundation for representing the 42nd Assembly District.

Just southeast of Baraboo, you'll find Fred's home and business on a small farm in the Town of Greenfield. A Wisconsin resident since 1989, Fred has lived in the 42nd District for the last decade, where he has worked as a consultant and contractor. As the owner of Clark Forestry, Fred has earned a reputation as a Wisconsin leader in sustainable forestry and efforts to restore wildlife habitat and natural areas. Throughout his career, Fred's work has involved building partnerships with loggers, the forest industry, farmers, family forest owners, environmentalists, and government agencies to ensure productive and healthy forests both now and in the future.

"Leadership," according to Fred, "is the ability to find common ground among diverse interests, and then work toward solutions which benefit all."

In a Wisconsin career spanning almost 20 years, Fred has worn many hats. He is a skilled facilitator, and his work frequently involves resolving issues between stakeholders, neighbors, citizens and other affected parties in natural resource projects. He is a long-time arborist (tree climber), and provided tree care services to the City of Baraboo from 2002 until 2006. He is also a trained sawyer, and often performs his own logging work.

Fred was appointed by Governor Tommy Thompson to the Lower Wisconsin Riverway Board in 1998, where he served as a representative for Columbia County. In 2004, Fred was appointed by Governor Jim Doyle to the Wisconsin Council on Forestry, where he leads the Council's invasive species committee.
