opioid-overdoseSen. Patty Schachtner talks about the issue of suicide and how we have to invest in mental health resources.


MADISON, WI – Senator Patty Schachtner (D-Somerset) offered the weekly Democratic radio address today.

The audio file of this week’s address can be found here.

A written transcript of the address is below:

“Hi, I’m State Senator Patty Schachtner with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

“Suicide is an issue that touches every Wisconsin community. It affects our families, our students, and our colleagues. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in our nation, with 121 Americans dying by suicide each day.

“As a medical examiner, I work closely with law enforcement to investigate deaths and speak with families. I know that each death by suicide creates a ripple effect that touches family, friends, and neighbors.

“I also know that these deaths are preventable and that we can do more to reach people who are struggling.

“That’s why I supported legislation to provide funding for a 24/7 text-based suicide prevention hotline.

“It is why I partner with schools not just to implement trauma-informed care, but to create trauma-responsive communities.

“In the next legislative session, we have an opportunity to expand access to mental health resources, and reduce the number of deaths by suicide.

“One priority is to join 34 other states and expand Medicaid, which can save Wisconsin taxpayers millions of dollars and ensure more people have access to health care at the same time.

“Another is to revisit the Medicaid reimbursement rate for services offered during a mental health emergency detention.

“Moving forward means that we need to invest in our priorities. That means investing in mental health resources.

“Thank you.”

wisc-dairy-farmSen. Jennifer Shilling tells us how we can support Wisconsin’s family farmers and ensure everyone can enjoy healthy, affordable and locally-grown food options.


MADISON, WI – Senator Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) offered the weekly Democratic radio address today.

The audio file of this week’s address can be found here.

A written transcript of the address is below:

jennifer-shilling“Hi, I’m State Senator Jennifer Shilling with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

“I don’t know about you, but my family looks forward to June all year. Not just because school is out, but because June is Dairy Month in Wisconsin!

“It’s a time for us to celebrate all of our hardworking dairy producers, milk processors, and local farm families that make Wisconsin “America’s Dairyland.”

“Throughout the month, you can take advantage of many family-friendly activities including parades, cheese tastings, and my favorite – dairy breakfasts on the farm!

“These events highlight the importance of our farming heritage and are a great way to learn more about where our food comes from.

“This month is also a good time to ask ourselves how we can support local farmers and strengthen our communities.

“In the legislature, Democrats have championed successful initiatives like Farm to School and the Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin program. We’ve fought to expand health care access, invest in broadband infrastructure and protect funding for UW-Extension agents who work one-on-one with area farmers.

“By promoting financial security and expanding economic opportunities, we can support Wisconsin’s family farmers and ensure everyone can enjoy healthy, affordable and locally-grown food options.

“I hope you’ll join me in celebrating June Dairy Month by getting out and learning more about our local dairy farmers. To find an event in your area, you can visit “HoorayWisconsinDairy.com” and enjoy all of the great events Wisconsin has to offer.”
