Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
What a great turnout of terrific people who had a marvelous time and were also very generous. Their heartfelt donations will go a long way to protecting children across the state of Wisconsin.
Entertainment was first-rate.
Band X was sizzling as the opening act. Their opening rendition of Otis Redding’s, “Hard to Handle” was smoking.
The Boogiemen followed with their usual high-quality tribute to the last decade that brought us decent music, the 70’s.
CFSW leader Shari Hanneman was somehow able to shake her booty in those big glow in the dark pink pumps. Talented lady!
Di Carlo Trattoria Pizzeria in Oak Creek did a super job on the food. Make sure you thank them the next time you visit their restaurant.
The volunteers are also to be commended for skillfully decorating the Oak Creek Community Center.

The camaraderie was amazing: elected officials having friendly conversations with their opponents, citizens uniting to have a wonderful time for a wonderful cause.
Once again, I thank the entire CFSW organization for giving me the honor to serve as the master of Ceremonies for this splendid event.
I thank everyone who attended for their kindness and generosity.
If you couldn’t attend and would still like to make a donation, please contact CFSW.

Since 2005, Citizens for a Safe Wisconsin, Inc. (CFSW) has been working to protect our children from violent sex predators. We are a state-wide advocacy group focused on policy change and public educations with a goal that no child will be victim to sexual abuse and exploitation.CFSW was formed by volunteers in response to the fact that Wisconsin leads the nation in the number of sex offenders who are released back into the public with minimally sufficient monitoring and management programs. We strive to see Wisconsin become the national model for protecting children from repeat sex offenders. There is still much to be done in terms of how Wisconsin handles where to put the most violent sex predators that are placed on supervised release from the state’s Chapter 980 civil commitment program. We are promoting the philosophy of Burden Equity -- we believe that no community in Wisconsin should be forced by the State to house all of these potentially dangerous people.
