Still at work for the 97th Assembly District

To do our part in preventing the COVID-19 illness from spreading, the legislature has updated its policies to allow many employees to work from home.

Staff will be working remotely, performing research, writing, solving constituent problems, and responding to the concerns shared over the phone and via email. If you send a letter through the USPS, a response may be delayed, so thank you in advance for your patience. We will continue to work as a team to provide constituents of the 97th Assembly District with the level of service they deserve.

We all must exercise prudent care to reduce the likelihood of spreading the virus to at-risk populations, and to flatten the curve of care for our healthcare system.  We all have that responsibility. 

We will continue to do our best, and it is our honor to serve you. 

There is a lot of speculation right now and a lot of misinformation being spread.  It is important for each of us to make sure we are accessing good, credible information.  I recommend this source: www.coronavirus.gov

All the best,

Public meeting for resurfacing along WIS 59 in Waukesha County

 *POSTPONED*

DOT-Bid-Letting.png

 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) had intended to host a public involvement meeting to discuss the plan for the resurfacing of WIS 59 (East Waukesha Bypass) from Sunset Drive to Arcadian Avenue in the town and city of Waukesha.

That meeting was to be held on Wednesday, March 18.

However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the current guidelines from the CDC, WisDOT has postponed the meeting until further notice.  Of course, we will keep you updated via e-update and Facebook when that is rescheduled.

Vote by Mail this April, Request an Absentee Ballot TODAY!! 

 

The Wisconsin Election Commission is encouraging absentee voting due to COIVD-19.  For more information, go to: https://elections.wi.gov/node/6719

There are several ways registered voters can request absentee ballots. If you have internet access, the easiest way is to sign up at MyVoteWisconsin, https://myvote.wi.gov.
 
Just look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. On a mobile phone, use the menu button in the upper right corner of the website. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. If you don’t already have a photo ID on file with your clerk’s office, you can upload a copy. Mobile phone users can take a picture and upload it to MyVote. Absentee ballot requests submitted this way go directly to your clerk’s office, and you can track your ballot by returning to the website.
 
Voters can also request absentee ballots by mailing, emailing or faxing their municipal clerk’s office. You can find your clerk’s contact information on MyVote Wisconsin. These requests must be accompanied by a copy of your photo ID.   If you already have a photo ID on file from previous absentee requests under your current registration, you will not need to provide it again.

Voters who are indefinitely confined, meaning they may have difficulty getting to the polls for reason of age, illness, infirmity, or disability are not required to provide a photo ID.  Voters in care facilities can have a representative of the facility confirm the resident's identity instead of providing a photo ID.  More information on photo ID and exemptions can be found at bringit.wi.gov. 
 
The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is the Thursday before the election, April 2. However, the WEC urges voters not to wait, sign up for an absentee ballot as soon as possible!  If you get an absentee ballot mailed to you, you can still decide to vote at the polls on Election Day if you haven’t returned it.
 Your absentee ballot must be received in your clerk’s office or at your polling place by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

The deadline to register to vote online is tomorrow, March 18, 2020!
