Local Legislators Recognized as Strong Municipal Allies

Post Date:06/07/2018 11:24 a.m.

According to the June 2018 edition of The Municipality, a legislative magazine issued by the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, three local legislators were individually named by the League as “strong municipal allies.”  According to the article, Representative Mark Spreitzer of Beloit, Senator Janis Ringhand of Evansville, and Representative Amy Loudenbeck of Clinton were given the special commendation. 

League of Wisconsin Municipalities Deputy Executive Director Curt Witynski says, “The[se] legislators worked closely with the League this session to advance legislation helpful to municipalities and to oppose bills interfering with municipal powers.  The League enthusiastically thanks each of them for their hard work on behalf of cities and villages.” 

“Several legislators stand out when it comes to supporting cities and villages and deserve to be specially recognized for their efforts to advance municipal powers and resources,” he adds.

Representative Spreitzer is serving his second term as a state legislator.  He advocates for local control and home rule powers. 

Senator Ringhand has been a dependable defender of local control and a strong advocate for municipalities.  Ringhand was also recognized as a 2018 Champion of Economic Development by the Wisconsin Economic Development Association.

Representative Loudenbeck authored Act 223 which allows municipalities to make positive levy limit adjustment in regards to TIF districts.

The City of Janesville would like to join the League in thanking Rep. Spreitzer, Sen. Ringhand, and Rep. Loudenbeck for their enduring service as champions for each of their communities.
