As we come together to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, now is the perfect time to give thanks for all the wonderful things and people Wisconsin has to offer.
We give thanks for our public schools and all the teachers, administrators and parents who work every day to ensure our students receive a top-notch education.
We give thanks for our world-class universities and technical colleges for conducting groundbreaking research and preparing our future leaders for the demands of the 21st-century economy.
We give thanks for our exceptional and talented workforce – the best and hardest-working group of men and women in the nation.
Thank you to our veterans, who have put their lives on hold and on the line to help keep us safe.
Thank you to our doctors, nurses, police officers, fire fighters, plow drivers, construction workers, small business owners and all the other dedicated individuals who provide important services to strengthen our communities and help make our state a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
Finally, we thank you, the people of Wisconsin. Our democracy is at its best when our citizens remain engaged and involved, and you have proven time and time again that you care deeply about our government and the future of our great state.
We hope you will continue to take the time to share your ideas, concerns and values with us in the weeks and months ahead. As always, we look forward to hearing from you.
Again, thank you and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
