Another Blow to PFAS Regulation in WI

“Despite their danger to public health, PFAS remain unregulated in Wisconsin.”

Once again, big business in Wisconsin prevails over our own health and safety:

What's wrong with this picture?

In it, we see a 4-foot-long John Nygren campaign sign in the yard of one of JCI/Tyco’s senior managers.

I don't fault JCI/Tyco's corporate management for knowing who their friend is—but I do fault Rep. Nygren for asking JCI/Tyco's senior management for political favors when he should instead be working to hold them accountable for our PFAS contamination crisis.

Schools Reopening

As the only AD89 candidate with children in our public school system, I stand with the freedom of our schools to make their own reopening decisions based upon the reality of this pandemic and not threats from the politicians who control their funding.

Get to Know me #1

Do I have any hobbies? Mostly reading books and riding bikes with my kiddos. When I do have a little free time, I build tube guitar amplifiers at a work bench in my basement.

This particular model is loosely based around the 1950s Fender 5F2A topology. I build my own circuit boards on that perforated glass epoxy turret board and source components from a few different places around the web.

I’m sorry to say I don’t have any completed amps to show off, but I’ve given them away to friends, sold them, or traded them all for other gear. This one is a keeper for me though, so I am looking forward to finishing it up!
