I had the pleasure of attending the signing of Senate Bill 99 today, as Gov. Scott Walker made official the naming of an iconic bridge at Lakeshore State Park the “Richard A. Grobschmidt Memorial Bridge.”
I want to thank Barb Grobschmidt, Rick’s wife, for the invitation, and for the opportunity to be a small part of this important effort.
She put it best: Rick spent his life building bridges, working with students and in state government to bring people together to make South Milwaukee, the South Shore and all of Wisconsin a better place. It’s a perfect tribute.
Congratulations to the entire Grobschmidt family for this special honor.
