Working in the District
As you may have noticed, I spent the whole week working from Wisconsin. Typically, the House of Representatives works in Washington three weeks per month (in-session) and one week per month from the district (out-of-session).

When the House is in-session, we are in Washington having committee hearings, policy meetings and briefings, voting on bills, among other things. When Congress is out-of-session, each member has the chance to go back to his or her district to stay in touch with the people who elected them.

I am back in Wisconsin every weekend and weekday that Congress is not in session because I believe that the best representatives in government are citizens of the area represented, as I have been my whole life. Having the entire week back makes it easier to plan visits to local businesses and meetings with constituents in order to hear which issues are affecting them the most.

If you would like to meet with me or have me tour your facility in the district, please call my Fond du Lac office at 920-907-0624.
I made it over to Madison this week to check in with some of my old colleagues and talk about the issues facing the state. I was happy to see my friend, Speaker Robin Vos!

Additionally, I had a meeting with Wisconsin's new Governor, Tony Evers. I think it is important to meet with my colleagues across the aisle to discuss the most pressing issues in Wisconsin and find ways we can work together to move Wisconsin forward. Our state is in the middle of an economic resurgence with record-low unemployment rates, so I urged Governor Evers to continue the policies that have brought Wisconsin so much success.

I was also glad to be invited to speak with WIBA host, Vicki McKenna, about the Mueller report and how we in the House are working to preserve the economic success of the last two years. You can listen to my full interview here.

Weekly Roundup

I met with Wisconsin Farm Bureau in my Fond du Lac office to talk about the agriculture industry as a whole, and ways to keep Wisconsin’s famous dairy industry the best in the world!

I made a house call to Waupun Memorial Hospital to discuss patient-centered health care reforms.

It was great to visit National Rivet in Waupun, a vital company that holds Wisconsin manufacturing together!

It was great to see everyone at the Beaver Dam Kiwanis Club, especially the bright students from the Beaver Dam High School Key Club!
