When I first ran for the U.S. Senate in 1992, I made a promise to hold open meetings in each of the state's 72 counties every year to listen to people's concerns and answer their questions. I have kept that promise, meeting approximately 48,463 Wisconsinites at these sessions since I was first elected. That's the equivalent of listening to more than every person in Marinette County (estimated total population 43,364) or listening to more than everyone in the city of Fond du Lac(population 42,095).

Listening Sessions, which I believe are one of the most rewarding parts of my job, are designed to allow people to discuss concerns, and listen to friends and neighbors do the same in an open environment. Except for my brief introductory remarks, I spend the entire time listening, taking notes and responding to questions. Wisconsinites give me great ideas for new legislation at these meetings, and when they tell me that they are having a problem with a federal agency, I can try to help. Listening Sessions work in Wisconsin because so many people come and tell me what's on their mind.

Due to the unpredictable schedule of the U.S. Senate, I usually schedule my Listening Sessions about two weeks in advance. Please also note that on rare occasions, Listening Sessions may need to be postponed if I need to return to Washington, D.C., for legislative votes. Notices of postponements will be posted on this page and my staff will also alert the local media to help us get the word out.
