Jarchow places his career ahead of his constituents

“I’ve never seen the lead author of a highly controversial bill not show up for its public hearing”

MADISON -- Today, Rep. Adam Jarchow missed an important public hearing on his own bill, even though he had his constituents make the long trip to Madison to attend the public hearing.

AB712, a bill co-authored by Jarchow on wolf management, was before the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage earlier today. During public hearings on a bill, it is standard practice for the bill’s author to speak on its importance.

Unfortunately, Jarchow was too busy working on his own career to be bothered to attend this hearing and support his constituents.

The following is a statement from Rep. Nick Milroy who sits on the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage that heard testimony today:

“It’s shocking to me that Adam Jarchow is campaigning for a promotion when he’s not even doing the job he has right now, especially when it is so important to his constituents.

“Not only did Jarchow skip a hearing on his own bill, he asked his constituents to travel all the way to Madison to attend that hearing. Jarchow is supposed to work for his constituents, not the other way around.

“In all my years in the Assembly, I’ve never seen the lead author of a highly controversial bill not show up for its public hearing. Western Wisconsinites deserve a Senator who will show up for the job and champion their needs, and it’s clear that’s not Adam Jarchow.”
