I hope everyone is enjoying the Winter Olympics as much as I am. As the games come to a close this weekend, it's important to note some of the great Wisconsin athletes in the games.
The gold medal winning women's U.S. Olympic Hockey Team is led by four Wisconsin Badgers. Meghan Duggan, Alex Rigsby, Hilary Knight, and Brianna Decker won the first gold for America in women's hockey in 20 years!
I should also point out that there are five Badgers on the Canadian team. Emily Clark, Ann-Renee Desbiens, Meaghan Mikkelson, Blayre Turnbull, and Sarah Nurse took home the silver.
Also good luck to McFarland's Matt Hamilton and Superior's John Shuster who will be going for gold Saturday morning in Men's Curling!
the National Council for Home Safety and Security
, the city of Mequon is the sixth safest city in the state. Whitefish Bay, Germantown, and Menomonee Falls also made the top 20 on the list. It's great to see our area recognized as one of the best places to live in the best state in the nation!
There's more good news in the 8th Senate District. Online giant
Amazon is planning
on moving into a facility in Sussex and creating as many as 364 jobs! Amazon plans on operating the facility 24 hours a day. Amazon's announcement is more proof that Wisconsin is open for business!
