In spite of the stereotypes, Rep. Adam Neylon, R-Pewaukee, has "a lot of pride" in being a millennial. And both he and Rep. Amanda Stuck, D-Appleton, place a lot of value in bipartisanship.
Millennials — identified as those born roughly between 1980 and 2000 — represent the generation that will be the political, governmental and business leaders of the future. But, because it's a generation that doesn't see public service as a career path and is turned off by the overt partisanship on the part of both parties, Olikara believes they can become a force of change for the better.
Millennials are killing napkins, home ownership and fabric softener. But in Wisconsin, they're about to try killing partisan gridlock, too. Reps. Amanda Stuck, D-Appleton, and Adam Neylon, R-Pewaukee, announced on Wednesday their plans to co-chair a bipartisan Wisconsin Future Caucus of state lawmakers age 40 and under.
