Top Issues Identified for Legislative Days

The Door County and Kewaunee County economic-development corporations have announced the local issues to be addressed with legislators and state-agency leaders April 19-20 in Madison during their Legislative Days event, and the organizations invite interested people to participate. 

This year’s agenda will focus on water quality, affordable housing, child care, commercial fishing and the repair of the historical Potawatomi State Park observation tower.

“We greatly appreciate receiving issue submissions from Door County and Kewaunee County residents, who shaped the agenda,” said Michelle Lawrie, executive director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC). “There was much consensus on the issues impacting our communities. We look forward to focusing on the issues, which directly impact the residents of our counties.”

The Door County/Kewaunee County Legislative Days event is a biennial trip to the state Capitol by a delegation of residents, elected officials, business leaders and other stakeholders of the two counties, who take a locally agreed-upon agenda of Door County and Kewaunee County issues directly to state elected officials and government-agency leaders.

“We are pleased to prioritize critical issues to our region that impact the economic vitality of both Door and Kewaunee counties,” said Ben Nelson, executive director of the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation (KCEDC).

The DCEDC and KCEDC invite interested individuals and organizations to learn more, participate and, as Nelson said, help to “drive positive change for the benefit of our communities.” Find additional information at Registration is encouraged by March 21, but it will be accepted through March 30.
