Forward Fridays


Welcome to my latest e-update! Here are highlights from the past week as your state representative. 

As always, feel free to reach out to my office with any questions or concerns you have.

Forward together!  

May Flowers

Happy May, 14th District! If you happen to be in Madison at all, stop by the Capitol and check out the tulips. It's finally feeling like spring! 

Joint Finance Committee

JFC Exec 5-9.jpg

Yesterday, the Joint Finance Committee had their first Executive Session on the proposed budget. In their first motion, they removed 131 important provisions, including the popular and fiscally responsible Medicaid Expansion. 

This is a blatantly partisan move from the Republicans, and one that does not reflect the will of the people.

Want to help fight for Medicaid Expansion?

Forward Wisconsin is having a Strategy and Action Meeting on Monday, May 13th from 7-8:30pm in Brookfield.

Register here!  

School Visits

It was a pleasure to meet you all and your parents before you left on your trip, and I hope you enjoyed the visit to Madison!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Speaking of schools, this week was Teacher Appreciation Week! I'm so thankful of the wonderful teachers I've had in my life, and who we have in our school districts. Let my office know if there's a 14th District teacher you want us to send thanks to! 

National Nurses Week

Thank you to all the nurses who ensure the well-being of our families and communities everyday! If there's a nurse in your life that you want us to thank, please let us know!


Tom Portz Painting.jpg

Special thanks to Tom Portz of Brookfield for loaning us this beautiful painting for the 14th District office! This office now feels like a gallery of our communities and I am grateful to our constituents who have contributed to it. If you're a constituent interested in displaying art in our office, please let us know! 

 Looking Forward

SESSION DAY: On Wednesday, May 15th, the State Assembly will be voting on many resolutions and bills. For a full list, click here


Office Hours Suggestions.png

We will be hosting more in-district office hours this month, and are in search of a location! Contact my office with suggestions for a local small business (cafe, restaurant, etc.) where we could meet with constituents in the 14th district. 

Feel free to email or call my office with any questions or concerns, or meet with me at one of my in-district office hours or listening sessions.


Forward together,

Rep. Robyn Vining
