ANTIGO - When the lieutenant governor and state lawmakers visit Sartori Foods, the company puts them to work. Tuesday afternoon Rebecca Kleefisch, Rep. Mary Czaja (R-Irma), and Rep. Gary Tauchen (R-Bonduel) put on hair nets and rubber boots to rub Asiago cheese and learned a thing or two about what keeps the family-owned business churning.
"This is really a lot of fun and we got our hands dirty today," Kleefisch laughed.
Czaja chose Sartori as the first stop of a day-tour of Antigo-area businesses.
"I think [Sartori] is kind of one of the stars of the 35th Assembly District," Czaja said. The Irma Republican's main goal of Tuesday's tours: turn workforce data into names and faces.
