Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

During the holiday season, it is important to take some time to reflect on some of the blessings that we have all had this year. I am thankful for my wife Nancy and my family, I am grateful for my friends and constituents back in Sheboygan County and for the opportunity to be your voice in the State Assembly.

I am also thankful that we continued to move Wisconsin forward in 2019. We made great strides in helping Wisconsin’s middle class with an income tax cut, provided important resources to helping Wisconsin’s caregivers take care of some of our most vulnerable citizens and invested in Wisconsin’s workers to help keep the unemployment rate low.

Looking forward to 2020, I will continue working on making Wisconsin a wonderful place to live and work, and I am eager to hear from you on ways we can work together to keep moving Wisconsin in the right direction.

As always, I encourage you to follow my updates on social media or contact my office directly with your questions. Once again, from my family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Beware of "Porch Pirates"

This holiday season has seen an increase in the number of online purchases. In fact, online sales are up 20% over last year, and will only continue to grow in the coming years.

The rise of online sales and deliveries has also led to a rise of "porch pirates" – thieves who steal delivered packages from a person’s doorstep.

I have co-sponsored a bill that would create a penalty for individuals who steal several items from more than one residence or building. Rather than get charged for multiple smaller thefts, this legislation creates a penalty for individuals who steal several items from more than one residence or building. The penalties of the theft increase in severity dependent on the number of pieces stolen or if the theft was against an adult at risk or elder adult at risk.

While it is my hope that this legislation becomes a deterrent to "porch pirates", please remember to protect yourself as you finish up your holiday shopping.

Lakeshore Technical College Civics Class

Last week, Sen. LeMahieu and I had a great conversation with civics students at Lakeshore Technical College about what it means to be a legislator. I appreciate the questions the students had for me and their eagerness to learn about state government.

Thank you for the invitation!
