Letter to the editor: Re-elect Loren Oldenburg to Assembly

By MARK DAVISON

Chairman of the Town of Forest Board, Vernon County

Being elected to serve as a local elected official is a big job. Whether you serve on a town, village, or county board, the decisions that you make have a direct impact on those who live in the area that you represent. It is crucial that we have someone representing us in the Wisconsin State Assembly who understands the complexities of the jobs of people who serve in local government. I am supporting the re-election of Loren Oldenburg to the Wisconsin State Assembly because I have worked with him and know how much he cares about the success of the 96th Assembly District.

Loren knows the difficulties that are presented when serving on a town board because he served on his local town board. During his first legislative session, Rep. Oldenburg was able to assist the Town of Forest. The Town of Forest is on the eastern side of Vernon County, and we needed assistance with the Department of Revenue.  I contacted Loren, and he was happy to help work as a liaison between the Town of Forest and the Department of Revenue.

After working with the town for a while, Loren scheduled a meeting for us at his office in the Capitol. When we had the meeting at the Capitol, Loren was able to get members from our town board and representatives from the Department of Revenue to attend.  This meeting was immensely helpful and ended up answering the questions that our town had for the Department of Revenue.

I know that Loren would be willing to help our town, or anyone from the 96th district. I am supporting Loren Oldenburg because having a leader who is willing to do whatever he can to help is important. I would like to strongly encourage you to join me in voting for Loren Oldenburg on Nov. 3, 2020.

    As a local government reporter, I watch a lot of public meetings — from city councils and county boards to criminal intake hearings and public listening sessions, to basically everything in between.
