Wisconsin through the Windshield June 8-15.
Yesterday my office wrapped up a great series of events that kicked off with Seniorfest at Serb Hall in Milwaukee on June 8th. I enjoyed meeting the many attendees, including Sheriff David Clarke, who stopped in briefly. I especially enjoyed the opportunity to return several thousand dollars to Milwaukee area seniors, and I look forward to being part of the annual event again next year. *Video from Serb Hall*
For those intersted, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services lists links to several services for the elderly here.
On Sunday, I had the opportunity to participate in a Wisconsin tradition for young and old alike: the Winnebago County June Dairy Days. The event took place at Rosendale Dairy, Wisconsin’s largest dairy farm, whose 8000+ cows produce 78,000 gallons of milk daily. I spoke about the importance of the dairy industry to Wisconsin, and highlighed dairy’s economic impacy, which I wrote about in this blog earlier in the month.
Speaking of economic impact, I spent Wednesday the 15th making an economic impact myself, returning thousands of dollars to people in Appleton, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan. In Appleton, I was even joined by former Treasurer Jack Voight, who reiterated his support for keeping both the LGIP and College Saving Program in the State Treasurer’s Office, a question that will be decided in the upcoming budget vote.
