Issues

More than 125 citizen delegates from Door and Kewaunee counties will travel to Madison to deliver our legislative and state agency agendas. The 2017 Legislative Agenda includes the following topics: 
  1. Support for Additional Funding for Improving Rural Broadband;
  2. Protect the Public’s Drinking Water in Our At-Risk Karst Geo-Region;
  3. Protecting Water Quality of Door/Kewaunee Rivers;  
  4. School Start Date: Oppose Repeal of Statewide Standard;
  5. Consistent and Adequate Funding for the Harbor Assistance Program.

For those who may be new to Legislative Days, the program consists of organizing a delegation of over 100 citizens to travel to Madison for two major purposes:

1) Educate state officials and legislators on an accurate picture of Door and Kewaunee Counties and dispel the widespread misperception in Madison that we are a uniformly wealthy, problem free area.; and

2) Lobby for assistance from Madison that will help us address issues, projects, and opportunities that are uniquely special to Door and Kewaunee Counties and enjoy broad community support.
