On Thursday, Governor Evers announced he was closing 40 State Parks in Wisconsin. Representatives Jim Ott, Janel Brandtjen, Dan Knodl, and myself sent a letter to the governor asking him to reconsider. Since the crisis began, the governor and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have encouraged people to go outside and enjoy our beautiful state. Closing our state parks prevents people from safely socially distancing and getting exercise at the same time. We hope the governor reconsiders this order.
I'd like to thank our clerks, poll workers, and voters for all the preparation and hard work they did on Tuesday to help with the election. Our clerks did an amazing job making sure polling places were as safe as possible. Many of our local communities installed several of the safeguards we see in our grocery stores and other essential businesses.
There are plenty of helpful links below to help people through this crisis. There are even
more on my website
. Please share them with your friends and family or anyone in need.
Finally, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Easter and and blessed Passover. I hope this time brings you comfort and encouragement.
As always, if you have any concerns or ideas on how to improve our great state, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone at 608-266-5830 or by email at Sen.Darling@legis.wisconsin.gov.
