In the District
I was honored to present a Legislative Citation to Dan Johnson of Danny's Meats and Catering. Dan is opening a new event center at the former Roundabout Bar and Steakhouse. Dan is a standup guy and valuable member of our community. He co-hosts the annual Rendering Thanks
Thanksgiving feast where more than 3000 people from all walks of life have come together for a free meal, exciting entertainment and overall sense of strong community partnership. Keep up the great work Dan!
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of speaking with the Cub Scouts from Troop 296 regarding citizenship in the community. Fine group of scouts!
On Friday, December 1st, I attended the celebratory contract signing for Foxconn. Pictured with Dr. Louis Woo, Special Assistant to Foxconn CEO Terry Gou; Dave Degroot, Mount Pleasant Village President and Representative Peter Barca.
Last Friday I also had the opportunity to attend a presentation at Giese Elementary in Racine. The fourth grade class presented their research projects to guests and Mrs. Jensen's fifth grade class (pictured above). Good job students!
Representative Tom Weatherston and I spoke at the Kiwanis Club of Greater Racine meeting on Wednesday, December 6th. Happy we were able to provide an update on Foxconn and the most recent state budget and enjoy a delicious meal with members.
On Thursday I was honored to speak at the Pearl Harbor Day remembrance at the Veterans Home in Union Grove. I met many fine people, including George Norton. George served in the Army Air Corps and is a 97 year old survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack. He is a recipient of the Navy Cross for his service during World War II. George was joined at the event by his sons, Lorne and Gary.
