The State of the State


Governor 500.jpg



    A little over a year after the start of this session, we reflect on how the state is doing. Let me tell you, things are looking good for the people of Wisconsin. Don't just take my word for it; Governor Walker spoke about all the exciting things happening in our state and some exciting opportunities that lie ahead during his State of the State address yesterday.

    Unemployment reached 3%, the state property tax was eliminated, and tuition was frozen for a sixth consecutive year. Many across the state are saving money, and the Governor is encouraging new investments, especially in rural areas. Sparsity aid for schools, economic development funds for rural businesses, and an expansion of Internet access are what make me excited. Individuals like you in my district will feel the effects of the programs proposed yesterday. You can see more about my reaction below.

    If there is anything I can do to assist you, please contact my office. You can share your thoughts, find out additional information on issues, or see where I stand on any legislation. I look forward to hearing from you and, as always, working for you.

State of the State Reaction

    It was a lot of fun listening to the Governor's State of the State address and reacting to it. You can watch a video on my thoughts and read more about my reaction in a press release I recently sent out. Please share any thoughts you have on the speech with me.

History Day Meeting

    Wednesday was even busier with many advocacy groups visiting the capitol. Amy Meyer (left) and Alex Brendemuehl from the Manitowoc County Historical Society paid me a visit during the Wisconsin Historical Society Legislative Day in the Capitol.

    We were able to discuss different issues impacting our community and connect over the painting in my office (behind us) of the Head Chief of Mixed Manitowoc, Waumegesako. I really enjoyed their visit!

Agriculture Day in the Capitol

    I sat down with constituents as a part of Agriculture Day in the Capitol on Wednesday, as well. The constituents spoke on a variety of topics, from wolf management, to sparsity aid for rural schools, to funding for the Wisconsin livestock identification consortium.

    I am grateful for both both perspectives I heard from during these two visits. Agriculture is a vital part of our economy here in Wisconsin, and I love to support farmers any way I can. It was also fun to learn from the experts who visited me about what makes Wisconsin cheese a slice above the rest!
