Candidate Biography

From candidate's official website

Gabriel Szerlong was born April 22, 1991. He is the youngest of four. Gabriel has resided in Milton his entire life. Prior to his birth, his parents made the decision to move to the quaint little town in Rock County in order to raise their children with small town values.

From an early age, Gabe participated in community and county-wide activities/functions. In doing so, he developed a strong love for his town and region. Gabe has always strived to be a part of group activities such as participating on swim teams and joining the Boy Scouts. "Scouting is very near and dear to my heart." Gabe quickly moved through the ranks, and at the age of 14 received the rank of Eagle Scout. Only 4 percent of Scouts earn Eagle and that percentage becomes smaller younger than 18. Gabe’s rise through the ranks enabled him to experience things and be surrounded by positive influences earlier than his peers. He quickly realized the impact he could have on his community and State. The Boy Scouts helped mold him and drive him to be involved in community impacted events.

Gabriel earned his degree in political science and public administration in the spring of 2017. During his tenure at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, he interned and served for Gov. Scott Walker’s office, as well as, the then-Speaker Paul Ryan’s Janesville office. The experience gained in those offices helped define Gabe’s career path. From that point forward, he worked to gain employment as legislative aide in Madison, and has hopes for continued employment as a representative to the 43rd District.

Gabriel is young in age, but what he lacks in years, he makes up for with spirit, a strong work ethic, strong knowledge of the 43rds values, and what this district needs in order to thrive. His youth allows him the perspective of many generations.

Gabe graduated University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in May of 2017. In July of 2017 he was hired as a legislative aide at the Capitol. Serving at the Capitol gave him the experience needed to serve the people of the 43rd Assembly District. As a result, he will not begin a career as an Assemblyman green. "My work at our state Capitol had been the most valuable work I have done so far for the people of Wisconsin. I am enthusiastically looking forward to serving the people of the 43rd for years to come."
