Hi, , welcome to my e-update!

As we continue to navigate through this time I thank you for being an informed constituent of Wisconsin's 4th State Assembly District.

Bart Starr Memorial Bridge

I am proud to announce that this past Tuesday, my bill to designate the Bart Starr Memorial Bridge in downtown Green Bay was signed into law by the Governor. Bart Starr was an extraordinary man on and off the field, and renaming the bridge in his honor is a small way to show our community’s appreciation for his contributions. I am grateful to my colleagues for supporting this bipartisan piece of legislation.

One of his most notable humanitarian impacts in the Wisconsin community was his partnership with the Rawhide Boys Ranch that began in 1965 to help at risk youth transform their lives. Through his and Cherry Starr’s continuous support, the youth ranch’s decades-long efforts still thrive today.


Getting Wisconsin Back to Work

On Tuesday, the Assembly met to override Governor Tony Evers’ veto of Assembly Bill 336. The bill would strengthen Wisconsin’s economy by ending the state’s participation in federal unemployment benefit enhancement programs. As businesses are struggling to find workers to fill open positions, Governor Evers’ veto of this bill was disappointing to many. I voted to remove these enhanced federal bonus checks because I believe it is time to get Wisconsin back to work. Unfortunately the veto override failed in a vote of 59-37.
