The Week in Review

Advocating for Safety

Throughout the legislative session, hundreds of students, citizens, and people from Wisconsin and different parts of the country visit our state Capitol for a variety of reasons. Some visit to see our magnificent Capitol building and others to meet with their state legislators.

The first two months of the current legislative session have been no different than past with hundreds of citizens and groups congregating in Madison to share their thoughts and concerns on a variety of issues.

This week ABATE Wisconsin made their annual trek to the capitol bringing along constituents from every Assembly district throughout the state to meet with their respective representative to discuss issues important to bikers. ABATE is a motorcycle rights organization that advocates for safety, bikers rights and “freedom of the road.”

This year, constituent Mike Mlinar stopped in. Mike has been an ABATE member for 40 years and this was his first time attending the issue-advocacy day.

It was a pleasure to meet Mike and the other members of ABATE. We had a positive discussion regarding several proposals that will come before the legislature this session. Several proposals focus on making Wisconsin roadways safer for everyone traveling our roads.

Meeting with constituents is one of my favorite parts of my job. Even if you’re not part of a group, please feel welcome to stop by my office and say hello to me and my staff. We always welcome visitors!

Have a great week!
