While bigger counties can handle their own issues by themselves, delegates for Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days have found they work better together. For 18 years county officials and citizens have teamed up to talk to state leaders about a number of issues, which this year include support for additional funding for improving rural broadband and maintaining the current school start date. Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation Chairperson Lonnie Vincent says projects like the over $4 million harbor improvement in Kewaunee may not have occurred without one county going to bat for the other. It is collaboration that makes it special.
The deadline to register to become a delegate is March 4th with trainings occuring in the middle of March. Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days is April 3rd and 4th.
