State Senator Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls) was honored recently by the Wisconsin Counties Association (WCA) with a WCA Outstanding Legislator Award for her work on behalf of county government during the 2013-2014 Legislative Session.
“Senator Harsdorf continued to be an incredible supporter of counties this past session. She supported increased funding for county land conservation and cost sharing grants, as well as authored a legislative amendment to reduce the burden of DNA testing on county law enforcement,” said WCA Executive Director Mark D. O’Connell. “She is a real partner with counties and has a tremendous understanding of how county issues impact every citizen in our state.”
The “WCA Outstanding Legislator Award” is handed out biennially to a select group of legislators who have represented county interests in both the legislature and in their districts. These legislators have demonstrated leadership for counties on key issues, legislation and the state budget.
O’Connell continued, “We appreciate all Senator Harsdorf has done this past session and are grateful for her dedication to the citizens of our state. We are proud to present her with this award and look forward to working with her in the future.”
In addition, her staff of Brooke Froelich was the recipient of a “WCA Outstanding Legislative Staff Award” for her work with the WCA Government Affairs staff on legislation throughout the session.
WCA represents the interests of county government both on the state and federal levels and is located in Madison, Wisconsin. For more information, visit www.wicounties.org.
