"Hello, I am Senator-elect LaTonya Johnson, and I am honored and privileged to serve families and communities throughout Milwaukee in the State Senate.
 
"Every year at this time, we are ushered into what many consider to be the most magical time of the year. And with snow finally here to stay across Wisconsin this week, many us are looking forward to sitting down with our families, enjoying the holiday season, and taking a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. But as we enjoy this time, it is important to remember that so many people right here at home don’t have access to the simple necessities that many of us take for granted.

 
"Please join me and my Senate colleagues by taking this opportunity to help out in your local community. Giving is contagious, it’s fun, and it’s a way to give back to your community. When you are generous and kind to someone, that person is more likely to be kind and generous to the next person they meet.
 
"So this holiday season, let’s create a culture of giving. Whether you provide shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, or comfort for those who need it most, each and every one of us can play an important role in helping out our neighbors. Together, we can make Wisconsin a warm and welcoming place for all of our citizens this holiday season. Thanks, and happy holidays."
