MADISON – Today, Representative Rick Gundrum (R-Slinger) was named the Chairperson for the Assembly Committee on Aging & Long-Term Care. Rep. Gundrum released the following statement on the appointment:
“I am eager to serve as the next Chair for the Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care and look forward to continuing the body’s work on the wide range of issues currently being faced by our state’s older adult population.
My past experience as the Chair of Washington County’s Aging and Disability Resource Center Board and the Joint Washington-Ozaukee Board of Health has allowed me to establish familiarity with the subject matter that we will be exploring as a committee. During my time as a caregiver to my aging parents, I developed a stronger understanding of the services and systems that are vital to promoting the well-being of all individuals entering the latter phase of their adult lives.”
