Busy Week with Visitors at the Capitol

It was a busy week in Madison as many visitors from the 24th Senate District came to the state Capitol for various activities.

Local members of the Wisconsin Tavern League had their annual advocacy day, and we sat down to discuss transportation issues and programs that ensure bar patrons can get home safely.

Monroe County Sheriff Wesley D. Revels also was in town for a Badger State Sheriffs' Association conference, and he visited the Capitol to share his priorities related to public safety.

Furthermore, numerous students from UW-Stevens Point filled the statehouse for the 20th annual Research in the Rotunda event. I am pictured above with Henry Niedbalski, whose research project focused on financial literacy education.

I was also able to meet with students from the WISE Academy in Nekoosa and Central Sands Community High School in Amherst.

I think it is important for young people to spend time at the Capitol and talk to their lawmakers so they can become more engaged and better understand the role of state government.
