Some members of the Door County Board had the unique opportunity to meet with federal government officials this past week. Five members, including Door County Board Chair Dave Lienau attended the Wisconsin County Executives and County Supervisors White House Conference on Wednesday. Lienau explains what his takeaway were from the Washington, D.C. visit.
Lenieu adds that trade issues, especially with Canada, for agriculture was a concern for the supervisors being that the cherry and apple producers in Door County are facing some challenges in exporting products. He says all the supervisors were surprised at the openness of the administration and the efforts put into creating an inter-governmental relationship at the local level.
