Elected alumni: Six (6!) former Phoenix, not five, serving in Legislature
We told you here yesterday about the growing number of UW-Green Bay alumni now serving in the state Legislature. We erred, however, by omitting yet another Phoenix alum, Tyler Vorpagel ’07. Vorpagel, an aide to retiring U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, was elected Nov. 4 to the state Assembly seat for District 27. He joins alumni Scott Krug ’09, R-Rome and Romaine R. Quinn ’14, R-Rice Lake in the state Assembly. Fellow alums Dave Hansen ’71, D-Green Bay; Rob Cowles ’75, R-Allouez; and Frank Lasee ’86, R-Ledgeview, are serving in the state Senate. Our thanks to Assistant Prof. Aaron Weinschenk for catching the omission.
