Seeks more funding, grants for early childhood teachers

Letter to the Editor:

I am writing as a constituent to encourage you to support higher funding for early childhood education teacher wages.

He also worked with the Wilderness Society and played a role in the establishment of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. What a legacy!
