Dear Friends and Neighbors,


Thank you for checking out my latest e-update. This week, you will find information about a new Governor’s Task Force, youth deer hunt weekend, and more!

As the Legislature gears up for session next week, committee meetings were packed into this week with nine Senate, eleven Assembly, and the Joint Committee on Finance all having meetings.  In addition to committees, the 2nd Annual State of Wisconsin Black and Latino Round Table gathered with special guests Governor Tony Evers and Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes in attendance. Additionally, the Adoption Task Force released an Interim Report

I hope you have a great weekend, and as we look towards Yom Kippur, may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life.  If you have any questions or need assistance with any matter, please feel free to contact my office.

Retirement Security Task Force Created

Recently, Gov. Tony Evers issued Executive Order #45 which addresses the growing crisis of retirement security in the State of Wisconsin. The aging population of our state is expected to increase by 60% by 2030, and it is estimated that one in seven Wisconsin registered voters have no way to save for retirement at work. 

The executive order created the Governor's Task Force on Retirement Security. This task force  is charged with not only looking into overall preparedness and financial impact of our current retirement structure, but is to also identify barriers, research best practices, and ultimately provide recommendations on how the state can best address the retirement crisis.

Our hard-working family, friends and neighbors deserve to have a financially secure path to retirement, but unfortunately far too many citizens do not have adequate or any retirement savings. This task force aims to help Wisconsinites saving for their futures, so instead of worrying and struggling so they can enjoy their retirement with their friends and family.

Youth Deer Hunt Weekend

The DNR wants to remind all those interested in the youth hunt this weekend to be aware of the safety guidelines for the annual event. This event is meant for kids 15 and younger, resident or non-resident, who want to hunt with a gun or other legal weapon before the regular firearm season.

This event is open to people younger than 15 who have the appropriate licensing and tags for deer hunting. If you’re new to hunting, you can celebrate your first harvest with the official first deer or first hunt certificate.

Bright orange attire is necessary along with company from one adult guardian per child participating, in order to keep someone close by to monitor the kid’s hunting activity.

It is a busy time with the beginning of school and the fall, so this is an opportunity for students to get outdoors, breathe the fresh air, and do something they really enjoy with friends and family. Stay safe and have a great weekend!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It is October again, which means that Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full swing. This designation is meant to raise awareness for the disease and celebrate survivors and fighters of the illness, and remember those who the disease took from us far too soon.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, so this month also serves as a way to elevate many women’s voices around the world. Though breast cancer survival rates have increased in recent years, the rate at which they have increased is not as high as it once was, and there are still underserved populations that are more likely to be harmed by the disease.

Months of awareness are great opportunities to see what the rest of the world is experiencing and give back to a community that may suffer. It is also a great opportunity to make sure your health is in check, get regular check-ups, mammograms, and perform self-examinations.

Wisconsin Fun Fact

Fifty years ago, the first successful bone marrow transplant was performed at the University of Wisconsin Children’s Hospital (now called American Family Children’s Hospital) by University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Professor Fritz Bach, MD, and University of Minnesota Professor Robert Good, MD, PhD. The bone marrow transplant was performed in 1968 on a 22 month old boy with Wiskott - Aldrich syndrome, an immunodeficiency disease.


The test that opened doors to this medical breakthrough was the Mixed Leukocyte Culture that combined white blood cells of the patient with white blood cells of related donors to find a match. It serves as surrogate marker for Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) gene compatibility. Bach was able to prove that a donor-recipient match of the HLA genes can help predict the success of a bone marrow transplant. Thanks to Bach’s discovery, we all now benefit from decades immuno-therapy and medical advancements created in its wake.
