Representative Kitchens Testifies with Constituents
It was a pleasure to testify alongside
the Peninsula Pulse owner, David Eliot, his editor, Jim Lundstrom, and
Sheboygan County Clerk Jon Dolson in support of my Legal Notice Bill,
Assembly Bill 731, which allows free local newspapers to publish legal
Keeping citizens informed about the
decisions local governments make on behalf of their community is an
integral part of democracy. Unfortunately, due to limited internet
access in rural areas, notifying the public can become quite a challenge
for small towns. AB 731 will help rural communities ensure that
they have access to important legal notices by increasing the options
available to small municipalities when it comes to disseminating this
information to the public.

Liberty Grove Partners with
Door County Broadband
I was excited to hear that the town of
Liberty Grove has partnered with Door County Broadband. Liberty Grove,
Door County Broadband's help, plans to apply for a grant available
through Wisconsin Public Service that will help fund the town's efforts
to increase internet service in their area. The funds awarded by
this grant would be used towards building three new towers that will expand
service to more than 90% of the township!
As the world is increasingly dependant on
online platforms, it is becoming steadily more difficult for families to
get by without internet access. I applaud the efforts of both
Liberty Grove and Door County Broadband to increase internet access
throughout our community, which is vital to attracting business and
keeping citizens informed.
