Rep. Larson Receives State Electric Co-op Award
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/13/2014
A state lawmaker from Colfax has been presented with the Enlightened Legislator of the Year award by the Wisconsin Electrical Cooperative Association.
GOP Assembly Rep. Tom Larson was given the honor during a surprise announcement at the group's annual lobby day last week.
"This is such a pleasant surprise," said Larson. "I thought I was just going there to give a speech. I am truly honored to be recognized by the WECA. As an electrical contractor myself, I have worked with numerous electrical cooperatives around my district and know the great work these folks do for businesses
and residents in rural Wisconsin."
Larson was selected as this year's recipient of the award for his support of electric cooperative issues over the years.
The WECA represents 24 electric distribution cooperatives across the state, as well as Dairyland Power.
