Letter to the Editor: Frostman for Senate

“Frostman for State Senate,” the blue signs are everywhere. They are a sign of good things to come. On June 12 the voters of Wisconsin’s 1st Senate District will have the chance to vote for a state Senator that not only lives in the district but lives in and can responsibly represent Door County. Caleb Frostman has my trust, my support, and my vote.

He has been relentless in his efforts to reach out to district voters, to listen to our concerns and to offer sensible bipartisan suggestions for improving rural schools, Wisconsin’s crumbling infrastructure, the opioid epidemic, the quality of jobs available to District residents and the quality of the workforce available to District employers.

Caleb brings private sector experience which includes an understanding of the needs, concerns, and new creative ideas of both employees and employers. He understands both farmers who are trying to figure out what to do with farm waste, and their neighbors who are trying to drink safe and clean the water. He has listened to teachers who have been victimized by “Act 10” and to school administrators who don’t have enough resources to educate this state’s most valuable resource – it’s children. As an avid outdoorsman, he is worried about the politicization of the DNR and the outlandish claims of some, that  high capacity magazines and bumpstocks are legitimate hunting tools.

The sensible platform that Caleb is presenting for our consideration is clearly spelled out at calebfrostman.com as well as on his Facebook page. Wisconsin, once a national trendsetter of democratic ideals, of environmental leadership, of quality public education from K-12 and into the University of Wisconsin, has been robbed by current leadership. These state-wide issues and their solutions require thoughtful, bipartisan consideration. Caleb should be part of that process. I want him to be my representative at that table. I hope you do too.

Vote Frostman for Senate on June 12.
