Coffee With Scott

Public speaking. The very idea of standing up and talking in front of a group of people can be foreboding to many people. When legislators hold town hall listening sessions, our goal is to listen to the questions, concerns and ideas from constituents, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone is heard.  Often constituents will opt out of talking at town halls so as to avoid having all eyes and ears in the room focused solely on them. Thus spurred the idea, “Coffee with Scott,” to hold pre-scheduled, one-on-one, ten-minute meetings and provide a more comfortable and personal conversation.

"Coffee with Scott", held on February at Roots Coffee Bar and Cafe, covered a wide range of issues presented by constituents. We are looking to schedule another in a few months and will update you with more details when they are available. 

Jobs Appeal

Letter to Trump

Last week, I sent President Trump a letter regarding General Electric’s impending move of Waukesha Engine to Canada.  President Trump has been an outspoken supporter of American manufacturing, and GE’s CEO, Jeff Immelt, is a member of President Trump’s Manufacturing Jobs Initiative.  If anyone could get Jeff Immelt in a room and convince him to change course, it would be President Trump.

State Budget Update

Governor Walker’s budget proposal includes eliminating the Forestry Mill Tax, which removes about $180 million from property tax bills over the next two years.  The tax has long outlived its usefulness, having first been implemented before the Great Depression as a part of a reforestation effort. According to the DNR, Wisconsin now has more forestland at any time since inventories began in 1936.

The work is just beginning on this important change.  There are many who will be fighting to preserve the status quo.  They think they know better how to spend your money.  No other state collects a similar tax for the same purposes as Wisconsin, and it’s time for this to be repealed.  I applaud Governor Walker for removing this obnoxious tax from our books, and I will be urging legislative leadership to support this common sense tax repeal.

Celebration of Excellence

As a father, I have always strove to give my daughters the best education and to encourage their success and excellence. On Sunday, February 26th, the Waukesha Education Foundation held its annual Celebration of Excellence to highlight those students whose hard work and accomplishments were made possible by grants. During the event, grant recipients were able to showcase their projects and achievements from throughout year.

The Waukesha Education Foundation aims to enrich classroom projects by providing funding for grants within the School District of Waukesha to increase innovation and creativity in the classroom. Since the Foundation was created, approximately $200,000 has been given out in grants, and the WEF plans to provide $30,000 in grants for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.
