Our office welcomes 2022 with a spirit of optimism and hope!  The new year provides us with an opportunity to reflect on the joys and challenges of the past year, and to renew our commitment to serve our communities and to take action on issues that impact us all.

Thank YOU for an Exceptional Year!

As Chief of Staff Sandy Saltzstein and I look back our experience in 2021, we have so much to be grateful for:  

  • Our Capitol colleagues, who helped us set up our office and navigate our work in the building--often literally.  It's very easy to get lost!
  • The many bipartisan discussions with individual colleagues and during hearings of the Energy and Utilities, Forestry, Parks and Outdoor Recreation, Small Business Development and Workforce Development Committees. 
  • Developing legislation, as co-author of 18 bills, co-sponsor 157 bills, and introducing 12 amendments in committee or on the Assembly floor.
  • Welcoming Governor Evers to our district, including his visit to Cumberland Elementary School to sign the 2021-2023 Budget!
  • Working with local leaders and passionate advocates in Bayside, Fox Point, Grafton, Mequon, Thiensville and Whitefish Bay on issues that matter to our communities.
  • We've had the privilege to work with passionate advocates on a variety of issues that impact the health, safety, education and well-being of people across Wisconsin.
  • Most importantly, listening to and working with wonderful constituents, many of whom visited with us during "Office Hours" in the district.  We've also visited with you at parades, Eagle Scout Courts of Honor, local government meetings, chamber of commerce events and awards ceremonies. We look forward to many more opportunities to serve you in 2022!

Constituent Services

"Thank you so much for getting this resolved so quickly for me. This will help my business to keep going with a great deal less stress."

-Constituent from Mequon

One of the most rewarding parts of our work is constituent services.  The "alphabet soup" of state agencies can be confusing, and we are here to help!  In the past year, we've assisted constituents with issues as varied as unresolved unemployment insurance claims (DWD), Medicaid prescription reimbursement (DHS), professional licensure (DSPS), prolonged amber alerts (DOJ), health care information for an incarcerated family member (DOC), and locating resources for state grants (DOA, DHS and DWD).  We are here to serve as your advocate on state issues and to assist you with making connections.

For more information about ways in which we can help, please visit the constituent services page on our website.

College Interns

Our office welcomes inquiries from college students who are interested in getting first-hand experience working our legislative office in Madison. An internship with our office provides valuable, hands-on involvement in the political process and a behind-the-scenes look at office operations. During the internship, students have the opportunity to work closely with staff and legislators, attend committee hearings and legislative proceedings, and build a personal network in Wisconsin politics.

We look for candidates with strong writing skills, familiarity with state politics, and a passion for assisting constituents. Interns are expected to work 8-10 hours per week between the hours of 9 am – 5 pm, Monday through Thursday at our Madison office. Internships are unpaid but students may receive course credit for their work.  Interested students can contact Sandy at

Start the year with a great book!

The Wisconsin Blue Book, published biennially, is a terrific source for information about the State of Wisconsin.  According to the Legislative Reference Bureau, the Blue Book's mission is "to furnish the legislature and the public with information about state officers and governmental organization, along with statistical information and articles of general interest."  We are happy to provide you with a FREE copy upon request by clicking here or on the blue book image above and completing the "Contact Us" form.

Meeting with constituents is the best and most important part of my job, and in 2021 we held 69 hours of constituent meetings and open drop-in times.  These sessions are opportunities for you to meet your state representative, and for us to learn what matters most to you, your businesses and your families. Office hours are held at small businesses throughout the 23rd District.  Click here to reserve your appointment on Friday mornings between 9:00 am--12:00 pm. If you prefer, we can also schedule a phone call or Zoom at a time that works for you.

We look forward to hearing from you!
