Over 100 delegates from Door and Kewaunee Counties are preparing to make their voices heard when Legislative Days kicks off next month in Madison. Officials announced their agenda items earlier this week, placing a focus on improving rural broadband, protecting the public’s drinking water and the county’s rivers, opposing new legislation regarding a new school start date, and providing adequate funding for harbor assistance programs. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman says over 30 ideas were collected in the lead up to Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days, but they had to adhere to three standards to be considered.
Frostman says this year’s contingent of delegates is the largest Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days has ever had in its program history. Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days takes place April 5 and 6.
