Dear Friends,

I hope you are well.

Our nation's economy seems to be bouncing back. On Thursday, the U.S. Labor Department announced the economy created nearly five million jobs. That was nearly three million more than expected. That's certainly encouraging news.

Happy 4th of July weekend! We have so much to be proud of as Americans. WISN radio host, Dan O'Donnell, did an amazing job outlining how much we have to celebrate this July 4th. Click on this link to read and hear his commentary.

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.

On, Wisconsin!
