Last week, Senator André Jacque delivered the weekly Republican Radio Address regarding the Wisconsin tourism industry.Listen to “Supporting Tourism and Healthy Hospitality” radio address here.  


“Hi, State Senator André Jacque here to talk tourism. It’s an honor representing some of our state’s most exciting and breathtakingly beautiful destinations, including Door County, the Lakeshore, Titletown and the Fox Valley.  Every part of Wisconsin has unique and inviting experiences and attractions, with our beaches and lakes, great places to stay, and the best Friday fish fries.


“From fishing, swimming, and boating, to hiking, hunting, and camping, it’s all here with a list of activities as endless as your imagination.   Wisconsin tourism is a vital 22 billion dollar industry that employs over 200,000 people in our state. The face of tourism in Wisconsin looks like your neighbor’s, small business owner’s, mom-and-pop shop’s. In the wake of everything that’s happened, our hospitality industry has dedicated itself to meeting the highest standards of health and safety, and now more than ever it’s critical that we give them the help they need to survive and thrive as our nation’s economy recovers. There’s a lot more state government can do to promote tourism safely and empower our local hospitality leaders as they roll out the red carpet.  Tourism can’t be political, and my Republican colleagues and I will continue to reach out to Governor Evers to build the supportive policies and investment needed for local and regional marketing.


 “These last few months have been tough, but we can all get through this together.  As Wisconsinites, it’s essential for us to keep showing our hard working small businesses that we trust them, we support them, we’re listening to them and we’ll work with them.  Wisconsin is the best, and friendliest, place to stay and to play. When it comes to fun- we’ve got it all!  So enjoy your summer, travel Wisconsin, and support your hometown, too.  Thank you!”

Over the weekend Senator André Jacque (R- De Pere) received the Legislator of the Year Award for the 2019-’20 legislative session from the Wisconsin Department of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Senator Jacque accepted the award in Wisconsin Rapids at the VFW’s 2020-’21 Program Kickoff and Council of Administration meetings.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized by a group I hold close to my heart. I am grateful for the sacrifice our veterans have made for our great country and their countless contributions to our communities, and I am proud to have an opportunity in the legislature to help ensure Wisconsin remembers that sacrifice,” Senator Jacque said.

The award was presented to Jacque after he worked closely with the VFW to introduce numerous pieces of legislation directly impacting Wisconsin’s heroes, playing a critical role this session in extending the veteran’s outreach and recovery program bill, passing military veteran and spouse licensure reform. Senator Jacque is the lead author of the VFW’s top legislative priority (2019 Senate Bill 116) to re-invigorate the disabled veteran and surviving spouse property tax credit, and previously authored laws to create tax exempt status parity between veterans service organizations and other charitable organizations, and expand sporting heritage opportunities for disabled veterans.

“The above and beyond effort that Senator Jacque puts forth on behalf of Wisconsin’s veterans is something the VFW of Wisconsin is proud to recognize,” says State Commander Jason Johns. “He and his staff take the time to discuss legislation with the VFW in order gather our input and assure it is the best it can be for veterans. The VFW of Wisconsin stands ready to work with Senator Jacque and all legislators in crafting legislation that meets the pertinent and relevant needs of veterans,” Johns added.
