Calling For Better Cell Tower Regulation

TransportationAllen.JPG 

Earlier this year I introduced the Mobile Cell Tower Siting bill which enables local units of government the ability to regulate placement of some telecommunications towers.  Currently, cities, towns, and villages have no authority to restrict cell tower placement within their jurisdiction. The bill allows political subdivisions the ability to require setbacks for new cell towers in low density residential areas. 

An Alternative Transportation Solution!

Earlier today I released a White Paper regarding how the Department of Transportation (DOT) can more efficiently allocate local, General Transportation Aid (GTA) dollars.  As stated in previous E Updates, the DOT budget is a key issue this legislative session. Currently, the proposed budget would require $500 million in bonding (borrowing) of the total $6.64 billion.  To decrease bonding, revenue must increase, spending must decrease, or both. To be good stewards of your taxpayer dollars, we must first look at ways to spend more efficiently.  The current GTA allocation formula is out of date, and must be revised to ensure greater utility.  You can read the white paper "here" I would love to learn your thoughts.

Town Hall Listening Sessions
Waukesha2

Representative Allen, Congressman Sensenbrenner and Representative Neylon

On Saturday April 8th I joined Congressman Sensenbrenner and fellow state representative Adam Neylon at the Waukesha City Hall to hear from constituents about state and federal issues. Next month, on Wednesday May 17th I will be joining Senator Chris Kapenga and Representative Cindi Duchow for Public Listening Session. The Public Listening Session will take place at the Genesee Town Hall from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. If you wish to attending you will be able to sign in and submit written question for the Representatives and Senator.  Questions will be taken in order, time permitting, and answered by their respective legislator.

College & Career Choices

Financial planning is always a daunting task, even more so when it is regarding your children’s future, specifically college. Not only do career choices need to be made, but also whether it will be a two-year or four-year university, in-state or out-of-state, and funding options to pay for college are just a few of the big financial decision that need to be made. The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has launched a new site dedicated to helping parents and students alike with financial literacy.

New Staff

With a new year and a new session come new opportunities! This year I’m fortunate enough to have two wonderful new staff members helping me in my job as your representative.

Dan Hubert .jpg

Dan Hubert

Dan Hubert was born in Milwaukee, and grew up in Franklin and Brookfield. Graduating from law school in 2009, Hubert went on to start a successful law practice in Missouri, graduated the police academy in summer of 2016, and then came to work for me in the final days of 2016. In Dan’s spare time he enjoys woodworking, camping, volunteering at his church, and most importantly spending time with his lovely wife and children.  Dan thoroughly enjoys his role in the office and serving the residents of the 97th district.

Dan Posca.jpgDan Posca

Dan Posca is a 4th generation Italian American with a passion for politics, he started working for Rep. Allen on January 3.  Graduating from UW-Madison in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Consumer Affairs, Posca has worked in the capitol since 2009.  “I’ve always had an interest in politics since the Bush-Gore election in 2000,” Posca said.  “But what really turned an interest into a passion was being elected President of the Student Government during my time at UW-Waukesha.”  Posca worked for Governor Walker as his Front Office Manager during the end of the 2011 debate over Act 10 and the 2012 recall.  While Dan isn’t sure if he’d ever want to run for public office, the most appealing aspect to him is public service. “My job right now is so fulfilling.  I genuinely enjoy helping constituents alongside Rep. Allen.  He wants to make sure folks in his district have a responsive state government.”  In his spare time, Posca is an avid NFL fan, loves cooking, and is a Marvel Comics fanboy.
