The Week in Review
Approves Legislation Honoring Rick Grobschmidt
On Thursday evening, my colleagues and I
Senate Bill 99, legislation that will name the bridge on the Hank Aaron
State Trail after former state representative and senator, Richard
Rick was a lifelong resident of South Milwaukee and devoted public servant.
He began his career in 1966 as a civics teacher at South Milwaukee High
School. In 1985, he was elected to the state Assembly serving five terms
before serving three terms in the state Senate. His accomplished career
culminated in his role as Assistant State Superintendent of Public
Instruction. Sadly, Rick passed away last year after a hard-fought battle
During the public hearing last month, friends and family came to Madison to
testify on SB 99, sharing heartwarming stories and fond memories that showed
the positive impact Rick had on so many in our community.
Rick’s work ethic and fond memory will live on with the naming of the
Richard A. Grobschmidt memorial bridge; a deserving honor for a great man.
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for Stopping By!
This week, I had the pleasure of meeting with
two groups of constituents who stopped by my office in Madison.
The first group included constituents from the Wisconsin Physical Therapy
Association sharing information about the benefits of physical therapy as a
safe alternative for pain management.
The second group, from the EMS Association and the Professional Ambulance
Association of Wisconsin, provided information about their profession and
the important role they play in public safety in our community.
Thanks for visiting!
