I am pleased to have been invited to contribute to RiverTowns’ new effort to provide forums for local voices to be heard on issues important to our area.  As your State Senator, one of the most frequent concerns I hear from citizens is the lack of Wisconsin news and information in our part of the state.  Due to our close proximity to the Twin Cities and the dominance of the Minnesota media market, it is often difficult for us to get Wisconsin news.

In order to provide you with more of what is going on in Wisconsin, the focus of this blog will be to provide information and updates.  Posts on this blog will often be in reference to state news, programs, or resources that are helpful or of interest to area residents.  As always, I welcome your input and feedback and encourage you to contact me directly if I can ever be of assistance.
