"....I'm very honored that (Senator Baldwin) would ask me to be her regional representative for northern and central Wisconsin. So, in those many cases, when she's in Washington and there are people that need to be met and events that need to be attended, I'm very happy just to continue to do what I've been doing most of my life...meeting with people and trying to answer their questions..."
Kreitlow says if you wish to contact him, to go to Senator Baldwin's website....
"....the website...if people want to go there and fill out the information online for their questions or concerns is Baldwin.Senate.Gov...."
