A Note from Rep. Edming

Welcome to my first e-update of the legislative session. On Tuesday, I was honored to take the oath of office and begin my second term as your state representative. I am humbled by the trust you placed in me to continue to serve as the voice of the 87th District in the Wisconsin State Assembly.  I am excited for the upcoming legislative session and ready to get back to work on policies that will grow our economy, reduce the size of government, and promote freedom.

This session I will continue to serve as the Vice-Chair of the Assembly Committee on Small Business Development.  I am eager to use my experience as a small business owner to promote initiatives that will improve our state's business climate and grow our economy.  I am also pleased to begin serving on the Agriculture Committee this session.  Agriculture is an important industry in the 87th Assembly District and the State of Wisconsin.  I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Agriculture Committee to craft policies that will allow agriculture to thrive in our state.  Additionally, I will continue serving on the Environment and Forestry, Health, Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage, and Veterans and Military Affairs Committees.

As the session gets underway, please feel free to contact me with any ideas, comments or suggestions you may have.
