KENOSHA – Today, Rep. Tip McGuire received the Outstanding Legislator Award from the Wisconsin Counties Association for his work on behalf of county government during the 2021-22 session. The WCA Outstanding Legislator Award is handed out biennially to a choice group of legislators who have represented county interests in both the legislature and in their districts. Rep. McGuire received the award at a ceremony in the Kenosha County Board Chambers.
Rep. McGuire is a former Kenosha County prosecutor, and this session as the ranking member on the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety, he worked closely with Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul to introduce the Safer Wisconsin package, a comprehensive public safety plan that would provide tools and resources to local law enforcement across the state.
“From public safety to healthcare, our counties perform essential services for our residents, and I am proud to fight for them, “said Rep. McGuire, “I have always believed in ensuring our local governments have the resources they need to provide for our citizens, because they are the government that is closest to the people, and I am thankful to the Wisconsin Counties Association for this honor.”
