March 18, 2011.  In light of recent events at the state capitol, the Door Kewaunee Legislative Days scheduled for April 12-13, 2011 has been postponed; the event will be rescheduled to a future date. We look forward to hosting the fifth Legislative Days, which provides the opportunity for local citizens, business and government representatives to bring specific concerns of the community directly to elected officials and influential government appointees in Madison. The event also provides a wonderful venue to showcase local foods, wines and our famous Door County fish boil for our friends in Madison.

A small delegation of local officials is planning an abbreviated trip to Madison during the week of May 16, 2011 to deliver a brief, targeted agenda to state officials and legislative leaders.

Past major successes of previous Legislative Day events include approvals and funding for projects such as the STH 42/57 4-lane expansion, Sturgeon Bay bridge improvements, WireTech relocation, tourism marketing, Shipbuilding Cluster Plan, phosphorous fertilizer control, beach water quality testing, invasive species abatement and registration of underground propane gas lines.
