A Note from Rep. Edming

Fall is upon us, which means the return of the legislature. The fall session is sure to be incredibly busy, as my staff and I are working on legislative initiatives. I will continue to look forward to your feedback and input on the bills brought before the legislature.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete my spring survey. Your input was quite valuable. My office received over 1,000 total responses. Please visit my website to view the survey results.

The 2015-2016 Wisconsin State Blue Books have arrived in the legislature. If you are interested in receiving a Blue Book, please contact my office and provide your name and address. My staff and I will work diligently to ensure that your Blue Book arrives as quickly as possible. There is no charge for a Blue Book.

Lublin recently celebrated its Centennial Days and I enjoyed learning more about the village's history and culture. It was great to see many familiar faces from the area, as well as meet individuals from Lublin, Poland.
