“It’s an honor to serve on the WEDC board,” Representative Armstrong said. “As executive director of the Barron County Economic Development Corporation, I work with many new and established businesses to maximize their potential, and I often consult with WEDC. It will be interesting to be on the WEDC end of things, and I hope my years of economic development experience will be an important asset to the board.”
The WEDC board includes Wisconsin business leaders, as well as members of the State Legislature. Representative Armstrong joins fellow legislators Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh), Sen. Dan Feyen (R-Fond du Lac), and Sen. Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee).
