Steven Kestell(b. June 15, 1955) is a Republican member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, representing the 27th District since 1999.

Kestell has worked as a sales manager and in retail management. Prior to his election to the Assembly he served on the Howards Grove School Board from 1981-1984 & 1986-1998.

He is a member of a number of organizations, including ADA Volunteer Firefighters, Calumet County Republican Party, Plymouth Morning Kiwanis, and Sheboygan County Family Resource Center.[1]

Kestell's answers to the Wisconsin State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test are available. The test provides voters with how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked his top priorities he replied:

"Our State must get it's budget under control. Citizens are paying all they can in taxes, but government has not done a good job setting priorities, and that has resulted in everything becoming a priority. I will continue to work to control spending and I need the help of responsible majorities in both houses.

Our budget problems will also ease if we concentrate on creating jobs while strengthening Wisconsin families. Strong, functioning families will prosper and make us all stronger. I will work to implement the strategies of the Committee on Strengthening Wisconsin Families."[2]
