After a primarily virtual edition in 2021, you will be able to advocate for your communities as a part of the Door County/Kewaunee County Legislative Days delegation. Members of the steering committee have been meeting to discuss various issues they would like to bring up to legislators when they head to Madison in April. Past topics discussed have included broadband internet access, school start dates, water quality, child care, and the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program. New to the process this year is Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Michelle Lawrie and her counterpart in Kewaunee County, Ben Nelson. Lawrie says she will have to dust off her lobbying skills, but she is excited to bring the issues directly affecting the peninsula to Madison with other residents in tow.
