MARINETTE — Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette, will receive the “Friend of Grocers” Award from the Wisconsin Grocers Association on Monday at 4 p.m. at Festival Foods, 2348 Lineville Road in Suamico.

The “Friend of Grocers” Award is given to legislators who score an “A” on the WGA’s Legislative Report Card — an extensive study of all legislators’ performance in the 2017-2018 legislative session. Lawmakers are graded according to their actions on certain issues that are especially important to the grocery industry, including unemployment insurance reforms, personal property tax relief and several labor issues.

“This is Rep. Nygren’s fourth Friend of Grocers Award,” said WGA Executive Vice President Michelle Kussow. “Rep. Nygren is a strong advocate for grocers and other small businesses in Wisconsin.”
