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

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

This year’s agenda will focus on water quality, affordable housing, childcare, commercial fishing, and repair of the historic Potawatomi State Park 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. “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.”

KCEDC Executive Director Ben Nelson adds, “We are pleased to prioritize critical issues to our region that impact the economic vitality of both Door and Kewaunee counties. We continue to welcome local residents and leaders to join us in bringing forth these issues to our state-elected officials and government agency leaders to drive positive change for the benefit of our communities.”
