I'm excited to be a member of the bi-partisan Speaker's Task Force on Water Quality.  This task force includes members from both the Assembly and Senate.  I'm especially pleased with the strong representation from our area of the state with Rep. Todd Novak as Chair of the task force, and Rep. Travis Tranel as a member.  

Mile Bluff Visit

I had the opportunity to tour Mile Bluff Medical Center and to meet the dedicated, professional staff there.  Thank you everyone for your valuable insight and the great service you provide!

Farm Stress

St. Peter's Lutheran Church, 325 Mill Street, Loganville, held its second Farm Stress & Suicide Forum on Wednesday.  They will hold a third forum on Wednesday, March 13, from Noon - 2:00 p.m.  If you or your loved ones are struggling with all the stress that farming can create, then I encourage you to attend their next forum. You can learn more about farm stress in this presentation put together by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection.
