GOP Congressman Mike Gallagher and about ten members of his staff took advantage of the August recess to visit Door County Wednesday. Gallagher has a van tour across the Eighth Congressional District this week as his reelection campaign begins already for 2020. One of his stops was an hour-long tour of the Hatco factory, a sprawling 400,000 square foot facility on the south end of Sturgeon Bay. The tour was conducted by Hatco President David Rolston and Vice President of Manufacturing Steve Christoferson. An emphasis was placed on automation in the Hatco assembly line. Gallagher has been to Hatco before and says it is important to expose their story to Washington DC.
When Congress reconvenes on Wednesday, Gallagher has a list of issues he would like to find bipartisan support to tackle including prescription drug prices and the USMCA trade agreement.
