State Senator James Devitt represented the 28th district of Wisconsin from 1969 to 1976. Before entering politics he was a partner in a real estate development firm and the director of the Bank of Greenfield. Devitt then served two years in the Wisconsin Assembly before he was elected as State Senator. In an ugly 1972 campaign against Democrat Robert Hoskins, Devitt was accused of charging nearly 850 personal calls to his office during one month in 1971.
