A Conversation with Regent Tim
Higgins: Part 3
I'll be using my e-updates to highlight
constituents of the 56th District and give you the opportunity
to learn about some of the dedicated public servants we have in
our own community. This is the last video of my
conversation with Regent Tim Higgins.
Tim is a constituent of the 56th District and serves
on the UW Board of Regents. In this video, we talked about the
Wisconsin Idea and the benefits the UW contributes to our taxpayers
and economic development.
