Kimberly Breunig, a county supervisor representing Salem, was one of 12 Wisconsin delegates attending the 2009 Public Issues Leadership Development Conference in Washington D.C. She represented the Wisconsin Associated County Extension Committees, Inc. at the conference.

WACEC serves as the liaison between county government and the University of Wisconsin-Extension.

More than 200 representatives from across the nation attended the conference, which featured presentations on topics such as alternative energies, community and food security, and youth and civic engagement.

Wisconsin delegates met with their congressperson and senators. Breunig met with Congressman Paul Ryan and Senator Russell Feingold.

“We told our elected officials how important federal, state and local partnerships are when resources are so tight at all levels of government. We need funding from all three partners to continue offering important local programs through Cooperative Extension,” Breunig said.
