Our first meeting was with Rep. Jimmy Anderson, Assembly District 47 (D-Fitchburg). Rep. Anderson knows all too well the effects of drinking and driving. During a visit to California in 2010, a drunk driver took his parents and his brother, leaving him quadriplegic when the force of the impact snapped his neck.
Rep. Jim Ott, Assembly District 23 (R-Mequon) has battled for years for harsher OWI legislation. Rep. Ott is currently working on getting three OWI bills (AB97, AB98 and AB99) passed. Marla spoke at the public hearing on these bills. AB98 did pass the Assembly and is now in the Senate. Marla will also be speaking at that public hearing.
Rep. John Jagler, Assembly District 37 (R-Watertown) is our local representative. We met with him to get his views and ideas on Wisconsin's OWI issues.
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, Senate District 13 (R-Juneau) is our local Senator. Caralee attended his Office Hours in Watertown to get his views on our state's drunk driving issues. You can watch the full video here.

We met with Senator Chris Larson on June 7th and Rep. Berceau on June 15th. We shared ideas and are going to work with them on any legislation they bring up on our OWI laws.
Our first event was attending the 2017 Annual Mock Crash that the DeForest Police Department put on regarding impaired driving. Marla spoke to the crowd and encouraged everyone to make good decisions. You can watch the video here. The video is two parts and the second part can be viewed on our YouTube Channel.
Our first fundraising garage sale was a huge success. We took in $785.85. We want to thank our community for supporting us in our journey to save lives.
