TASC’s State Representative Visits

Cropped PicWisconsin State Representative Melissa Sargent of Assembly District 48 (the district in which TASC’s corporate office resides) stopped in for a tour and meeting on the morning of Friday, January 31, 2014. Representative Sargent met with CEO Dan Rashke, Legislative Analyst Jason Westphal, and Public Relations & Communications Director Bruce Stein for nearly an hour before taking a short tour of the TASC facility.

By her estimate, Representative Sargent has knocked on the front door of nearly 10,000 households in her district. She also has started to reach out and visit some of the businesses that call Assembly District 48 home. A very impressive feat, especially when you consider that Sargent, during her time in the Assembly, has also served concurrently as a Supervisor on the Dane County Board, continues to run a small business, and is mother to four growing boys. Suffice it to say, the east side of Madison has elected one hard working representative.

During the meeting, Representative Sargent received some background and history on TASC and discussed several ways TASC could be helpful to the 48th Assembly District, to Dane County, and to the State of Wisconsin. These included providing a resource as Wisconsin continues to deal with the effects of Healthcare Reform legislation, providing Flexible Spending Account (FSA) administrative services for the State of Wisconsin (currently outsourced to a California-based company), and offering other third-party services to Dane County.

Representative Sargent was very open and receptive to TASC’s ideas and suggestions, and was equally impressed with our company and our commitment to philanthropy. As a small business owner herself, she really appreciates the benefits TASC offers to business Clients, and as a resident of Madison, she appreciates the work TASC does to help Dane County’s less fortunate. In return, I was impressed with her intelligence, drive, and commitment to serve. TASC and I look forward to a continuing relationship with Representative Sargent.
