(Madison, State Capitol) The Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups has awarded State Senator Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls) with their 2011 Civic and Business Leadership Award. This award has historically been given to legislators and elected officials who have shown bipartisan support while working with communities in their area on economic development.
“I am so very honored to receive this award,” says Harsdorf. “As a legislator, I recognize the importance of working with members of both parties to improve our communities, our state, and the quality of life for our citizens. While these are challenging economic times, economic development and creating jobs and putting people back to work must be a top priority. Being recognized for my efforts to improve the economy for Wisconsin residents is greatly appreciated and I look forward to continuing our efforts to make our communities a great place to live, work, and retire in.”
