Wisconsin Business Association Meeting

On Tuesday, I met with Wisconsin Business Association Members Tom Kleiman, President of the Wisconsin Lakeshore Business Association, Bret Cook of Algoma, and Arinie Arredondo of Kenosha. The main focus of our discussion was on aquaculture issues. Wisconsin has a thriving aquaculture industry and Dodgeville is home to Gollon Bait & Fish Farm, one of the largest fish farms in the state.

Winter Free Fishing Weekend

Fish without a license or a trout stamp in Wisconsin this weekend on January 21 and January 22. This is a great opportunity to introduce a friend, family member, or young one to Wisconsin's ice fishing traditions. No gear? No problem! Local DNR offices are open to lend equipment to anyone who is in need. Click here for more information on equipment rental and restrictions.

Representatives from Richland, Lafayette, and Iowa County

 

County representatives from the district were at the capitol for the Wisconsin Counties Association lobby day this week. Visiting my office were Nicole Maurer, Lafayette County Finance Director, and Richland County Board Chairman Jeanetta Kirkpatrick. Also stopping by were Iowa County Supervisors Carol Anderson, Ron Benish, and Jeremy Meek along with Iowa County Administrator Larry Bierke. We discussed several issues that affect counties such as increased funding for child welfare, supporting county conservation agents, veteran service officers, and funding for emergency services.
