Local legislators celebrate inauguration day

It was nothing new for State Rep. Joel Kitchens and State Senator Andre Jacque, but they are still thankful for you allowing them to serve. On Tuesday, Jacque was sworn in for the second time representing District 1 in the Wisconsin Assembly, and Kitchens celebrated for the fifth time. Wednesday was marked with many meetings to prepare for the upcoming session, including passing the 2023-2025 biennial budget. Kitchens is happy to see Governor Tony Evers, Speaker Robin Vos, and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu seem more willing to talk and work through their problems than they have in recent years.

Jacque says the two months between election day and inauguration always seem long, but he is excited to get back to work in Madison.

Tuesday also marked the inauguration day for the newly re-elected Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard, Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski, U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher, and U.S. Senator Ron Johnson.
