One of the most important aspects of my job as State Senator of the 17th District is to understand the needs of our community and the viewpoints of constituents. As an elected official, it is impossible to always agree with every constituent on every issue, but it is important for me to hear your perspective and understand the issues you face regarding our current state laws.
Will the Democrat District Attorney in La Crosse County press charges against Holmen School Board President (Democrat) Cheryl Hancock who proceeded to open discussion on an issue that was not part of the stated agenda for the meeting?

This week marks the first anniversary of the riots that left Kenosha in ashes.
Fifty businesses were destroyed or damaged. Fires burned while lifetimes of hard work and livelihoods went up in flames. After Governor Evers blamed the police and picked sides, law enforcement requested the governor stop making statements that fuel the protests and make things worse.
The nation has watched with alarm the unfolding chaos in Afghanistan as President Biden pulled the rug out from under the Afghan army, resulting in the Taliban seizing power of the nation in under 240 hours. While the President’s precipitous and poorly planned actions have placed the Afghan people in danger and guaranteed the death and oppression of Afghan women, he has also made our own nation less safe from the threat posed by terrorists.

This week we were all confronted with grim images and videos reminiscent of 1975 Saigon coming out of Afghanistan. All Americans are saddened by these events and are hoping for the safe return of our fellow citizens.
“Who?” you may ask are Glenn, Tom, & “Fitz”? There have been many well- known trios in our American past. Larry, Moe, and Curly were the Three Stooges. Huey, Dewey, and Louis were Donald Duck’s nephews. Peter, Paul, and Mary were a singing trio. Many American students have read The Three Musketeers by Dumas. Others would talk of The Three Tenors or The Three Amigos. But, who are Glenn, Tom, and “Fitz”?
I want to thank all the voters who helped put Democrats in power at this time in history. Your votes led to Democrats controlling both houses of Congress in addition to the White House and the results of your efforts are now serving as a perfect case study in why it is so dangerous to put Democrats in control of anything.
