DUEY STROEBLE HOLDS TOWN HALLS
Duey Stroebel (R), Cedarburg, has reintroduced a bill that will limit when and how frequently a district could go to referendum.
While his previous attempts failed, he is back at it. We encourage all Region 7 members to participate in his remaining town halls.

The resounding answer is: Miguel Salas. I know of no one more deserving of the Cunningham, Dickinson, Watson Memorial Staff Award."
