Hraychuck Appointed to Five Assembly Committees
MADISON – Assembly Speaker-elect Rep. Mike Sheridan has appointed Rep. Ann Hraychuck as a member of five committees for the upcoming session.
In addition to chairing the Assembly Fish and Wildlife Committee, Hraychuck will continue to serve on the Natural Resources Committee, Criminal Justice Committee, and the Tourism, Recreation and State Properties Committee as she did last session. New to Rep. Hraychuck’s responsibilities is the Rural Economic Development Committee.
“I am very pleased with my committee assignments for the 2009-2010 session and believe they capture many of the key issues people in the 28th Assembly District care about,” said Hraychuck. “Not only do they reflect the district, but they also reflect my passions and experience.”
While there are other legislators with law enforcement experience, Hraychuck is the only former sheriff serving in the legislature. “I look forward to using 32 years of law enforcement experience to further public safety in Wisconsin through the Criminal Justice Committee,” said Hraychuck. “Managing our natural resources, protecting our environment, promoting tourism, and strengthening our economy are issues that my colleagues and I will be addressing through the committee process,” continued Hraychuck.
The Assembly Democratic leadership team reorganized committees and made assignments to reflect the pressing needs of the people of the State of Wisconsin and the varied strengths of the Democratic caucus.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find ways to use the committees as means of cultivating job growth and continuing to improve the quality of life in Wisconsin,” said Hraychuck. “We are facing tough economic times, and we can’t rely on the state budget process to fix all of our problems. I think utilizing our committee members is a great way to generate alternative solutions,” added Hraychuck.
In addition to the issues addressed in her committees, Rep. Hraychuck will also continue to work on tax fairness, property tax relief, health care reform, and education funding issues during this session.
