State-elected officials hear from D-K Legislative Days delegation

A large contingent of people from Door and Kewaunee counties met with state legislators over two days last week in Madison to discuss important economic initiatives for the area.  The group included 66 citizens, elected officials, and business and community leaders, along with students from Sturgeon Bay, Gibraltar, and Luxemburg-Casco.  As in the past, the event served as an educational experience for high school students.  


Dividing into smaller groups, the delegation collectively met with almost 100 state officials during the Door County/Kewaunee County Legislative Days event.    

Michelle Lawrie, executive director of the DCEDC, says the grassroots event has contributed to numerous achievements since 2003 for the peninsula.

 

  

The far-ranging topics of discussion included water quality, affordable housing, childcare, commercial fishing, repair of the Potawatomi State Park Tower, and funding for youth apprenticeship.  


Luxemburg-Casco junior Eva Hau said, “To be honest, I didn’t really know how the (advocacy) process worked.  This gave me a better understanding, and I found it cool that we could sit down with (legislators and staffers) and express our issues and concerns freely.”

This was the 10th biennial Door County/Kewaunee County Legislative Days event that was organized by the Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) and the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation (KCEDC).
