FOND DU LAC REGIONAL MEETING WELL ATTENDED

 

 

Raymond and Connie are extraordinary WUI members who traveled all the way from Texas to attend our Fond du Lac Regional Meeting. Thank you Raymond and Connie, it was wonderful to meet you!

Our third WUI Regional Meeting for 2012 was held at the Holiday Inn,  Fond du Lac on Tuesday, July 17th.   Attendees learned more about the Defend my Dividend campaign and how to respond to the threat of a tax increase on our dividend income.  We are grateful to Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt for speaking at our event and for sharing with our members the most effective ways to contact their legislators.  Rep. Thiesfeldt encouraged members to write a hand-written note to their legislators as this individual approach has a far greater effect on our representatives than a form letter.  WUI Executive Director, Robert Seitz,  added that multiple contacts (email, phone, and letters) will put members in the top two percent of constituents, as most people do not take the time to tell their legislators how policy is affecting them.  We are also appreciative of Alliant’s Regional Director of  Operations for North East WI,  Donna Braatz, who shared a company update video and answered questions at the meeting.  Donna is responsible for gas and electric emergency response, gas and electric reliability and service to the customer and communities in the North East region of Wisconsin.   Just as Donna is driven to do her job well because she is connected with the people she serves, we were given a personal insight into the workings of Alliant Energy Company.
