At the Wednesday Farmers' Market I signed nomination papers for the longest-serving state legislator in the country

My State Senator is the Longest-serving State Legislator in the United States
Fred Risser was one of the 14 Democratic state senators who left Wisconsin when Scott Walker dropped his budget bomb last year. He turned 85 earlier this month, and I was happy to be able to sign his nomination papers at the Wednesday Farmers' Market for another run this fall. Fred Risser has never lost an election. First elected to the Wisconsin Assembly in 1956, he is the longest-serving state legislator not only in Wisconsin history, but in U.S. history as well.
