Working for you!


Welcome Home, Honor Flight!

I had the honor to greet Gene Vande Loo and other members of the Honor Flight at the Outagamie County Airport. Gene is a veteran of the Korean War and traveled on this Honor Flight with his brother, Victor Vande Loo, who also served in the Korean War. Gene's daughter, Doris, serves in the Wisconsin Assembly Chief Clerk's office.

Attending an Honor Flight to cheer on our veterans with their families and loved ones is truly one of the most rewarding things you can be a part of. If you want to donate, sponsor, or volunteer with the Honor Flight Network, click here for more information.

Helping a Veteran and Neighbor in Need

Jerry Monson is a veteran and constituent of the 56th district. His mobile home was destroyed during a weatherizing project. Jerry is trying to replace his home, but continues to run into more bureaucratic hurdles with the City of Appleton. Senator Roth and I visited Jerry to hear his story and find out how we can help.

Community Service with the Greenville Lions

I (far right in the Badger cap) got to help remodel a house owned by the local VFW with my friends in the Greenville Lions Club. The home will be used for housing veterans in need.

Visiting the Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant

Several of my colleagues and I (center, green shirt) visited the Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant in Two Rivers to learn about how nuclear energy is used in Wisconsin. It was great to learn about this safe, reliable, and low-cost producer of energy for our state.


I live in Greenville, but have an office at the State Capitol in Madison. If you are in downtown Madison, please feel free to stop by and say hello! Just go to the information desk in the rotunda, and they can direct you on how to find my office, 318 North. At the bottom of each e-update, you'll see my office contact information.

If your school or group plans to tour the Capitol building, please let me know in advance. I'd love to visit with you for a few minutes and take a group photo.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
