COVID-19 Update

Dear Neighbor,

In order to support your families being able to take a deep breath, turn away from constant news updates, and create a new temporary normal, my office will continue sending a daily COVID-19 update and will post online on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It is my hope that one reliable update each day will allow you to take a deep breath, oversee all that is happening in your own life and home, and have a reliable source of news you can count on to be up to date and accurate.

My greatest concerns right now are your lives and livelihoods. We are working hard to keep you and your loved ones safe, and to fight for our small businesses in an unprecedented crisis. 

In solidarity,

Rep. Robyn Vining

Small Business Assistance

When we knew the disaster was imminent two weeks ago, I got on a call with the White House, various state agencies, and began working on relief proposals for small businesses.

As a small business owner myself, I know the challenges ahead.

Over the next few days and weeks, we will continue to share what is available for small businesses, and continue to submit proposals and advocate for the gig economy, solo entrepreneurs, independent contractors, micro businesses, and small businesses of every size from 500 employees to 1.

 Spring Election

Online registration to vote has been extended until March 30, 2020 for the April 7th Spring Election. You can register to vote online HERE.

On the website, you can also request your absentee ballot until April 2nd to vote by mail. 


On a personal note, I want to assure you we are doing everything we can with the information and power that we have while working through an unprecedented pandemic that has facts and advice changing seemingly constantly. I will continue monitoring this crisis, and I will not forget my call to service to the people of the 14th district. Part of my job is disseminating information, and we will keep you posted as news happens. And, we will also work to generate ideas for how to best respond. I understand this is both a challenging time, and for many-- a scary time. Please check on your neighbors, reach out to the elderly, if you need help and receive an offer for help, take confidence in accepting that help. Together, as one Wisconsin, we will walk through this moment, and may we remember one another, reach out, ask for help, offer help, and be the community to one another we were made to be. Now is the time to draw together as one Wisconsin.

My office is here. Please reach out with any questions. We will be at work. And once again, the safety and security of my constituents is my number one priority. Please rest at night knowing that.
