A written transcript of the address is below:

“Hello, this is State Sen. Tim Carpenter.  I hope you are enjoying all the great things about our summer in Wisconsin! From visiting church festivals, watching our kids play, Dairy Breakfasts, or cooking brats on the grill, summer is a great time of year to be outdoors in Wisconsin. And one of my all-time favorite events – the Wisconsin State Fair! 

“The State Fair first started in 1851 in Janesville, and has a long tradition of bringing together Wisconsinites for unique entertainment and incredibly good food. Whether your focus is on the first-class musical entertainment on the Main Stage, or the award-winning farm animals with your kids, the State Fair is a fun way for the family to enjoy all the great things in Wisconsin.

“Of course, we can’t talk about Wisconsin’s State Fair without mentioning the food. Famous cream puffs, roasted corn, and every creative type of a fried treat.  My father used to refer to spending a happy day at State Fair as “eating my way through the State Fair” and I will try to keep up that tradition. I hope you will join me with friends and family and create new enjoyable memories at the Wisconsin’s State Fair.”
