Celebrating the Cooperative Spirit in Wisconsin
In Northern Wisconsin, cooperatives have been a vibrant part of our community for over a hundred years, demonstrating what we can do when we work together. That’s something worth celebrating!
You Can’t Get There From Here
I lived for a short while in Maine and often heard people, only half-jokingly, say “You can’t get there from here.” Unfortunately, for many of us in Northern Wisconsin, it’s getting to the point where it’s less of a joke and more of a truth.
PFFW Present Bewley with 2018 Legislator of the Year Award
Firefighters, paramedics, and first responders provide the safety net for every community in Wisconsin. I am proud to be able to support them in return. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
Bewley receives "Champion of Economic Development” Award
“Senator Janet Bewley was a champion on numerous legislative issues to help foster economic prosperity
and create new opportunities for growth in Wisconsin,” said Brian Doudna, Wisconsin Economic Development Association Executive Director.

Cable TIF Bill Signed Into Law

Life Is Grand
Having a child is a bet on the future. Bringing a new life into the world is a statement that you believe that that tomorrow will be a better day, that there are things to learn, experiences to share, that love and hard work will pay off.
The Way It Ought To Be
It doesn’t happen often enough at the State Capitol, but it did this week. For at least one bill on one day, the legislative process worked the way that it is supposed to, the way that 4th graders across the state are told it works when they study Wisconsin Government.
Bewley Bill Passes Senate
In Northwestern Wisconsin, it is hard enough for small communities to recruit enough poll workers for Election Day. This bill will ease a burden on our local communities and I’m pleased to have worked with Representative Subeck to get this done.
Northern Wisconsin Comes to Madison
e’ve shown that the people of Northern Wisconsin can do more with less. We’ll keep fighting to keep more of our resources at home instead of sending them overseas.
