County supervisors ask lawmakers directly for more social workers

Some Door County supervisors met legislators face to face to say more social workers are needed. Three county supervisors visited the state capitol as part of the Wisconsin Counties Association County Ambassadors program.  They urged lawmakers to support $30-million proposed statewide for children and families through foster care. Door County Supervisor Megan Lundahl says that includes hiring more social workers to meet an increased workload.

 

 

Among the other issues Lundahl and other supervisors discuss with lawmakers was grant funding to help counties upgrade 911 emergency communications systems.
