Wisconsin is a beautiful state and we’re fortunate that previous generations made it a priority to preserve it for future generations. We cherish our public lands and waterways and we protect our freshwater resources to ensure they are among the cleanest in the world. Tourists travel over our roads to visit our natural areas and we’re proud to share the natural beauty of our state with those who wish to get away for a day.
Our commitment to being good stewards of our environmental resources is more important now than ever before. Environmental regulations based upon the preponderance of scientific evidence should not be compromised. The roads that tourists travel upon to enjoy local festivals and attractions are in a state of disrepair. Kicking the can down a crumbling road detracts from the enjoyment of the journey and we all pay the price of higher vehicle maintenance expenses.
Local communities rely on public services and public employees to maintain the basic infrastructure that is needed to provide quality of life for those who live, work, and play in Wisconsin. In the modern world we live in, we need to provide an expanded broadband infrastructure that is protected by the principles of net neutrality. We need to ensure that we are providing social and economic opportunities to every community in Wisconsin.
