Tom Petri's Staff: Almost There, Guys!

Last time I caught a press release from Rep. Tom Petri's I found it a little, um, dull ... OK, it was downright mind-numbing. But the interns in the congressman's press secretary's office are starting to get the hang of it. Here's their latest effort:

U.S. Rep. Petri: Plymouth farm wins solar grant

Niel Wright, Press Secretary

Representative Tom Petri reports that a 25-acre vegetable crop farm in Plymouth will receive a $12,325 Rural Development grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The funds will contribute to the installation of solar powered photovoltaic panels to provide electricity for the farm.

"The farm has all matching project funds in place, including grants from Focus on Energy and Renew Wisconsin," Petri said. "This project will help to demonstrate environmentally positive ways to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and I'm happy to have it happen in east-central Wisconsin."

See? Short and to the point. That little "I'm happy to have it happen in east-central Wisconsin" is a lot better than "I am pleased that we are moving forward with necessary repairs." Still not great, but definitely a move in the right direction.
