On Saturday July 21st 2018 Wisconsin state assemblyman Joel Kitchens traveled to Cherryland Airport for a ceremony performed by members of the Door County Composite Squadron of the Civil Airport. Under Lt. Col. David Fish, squadron commander for the Door County Composite Squadron, Joel Kitchens was inducted as a major into the Wisconsin Wing Legislative Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP).
Kitchens then held an informal Q&A session with five cadets who attended the regular meeting of the organization.
Major Kitchens joins 35 Assembly members and 19 state senators and who have received membership in Civil Air Patrol as a part of the organization’s efforts in lobbying and influence peddling.
Many US citizens have come to recognize that state and federal lawmakers cannot work proper oversight of the Civil Air Patrol program or control their runaway spending if they are receiving the benefits of awards, recognition and future voter support from an audience and base that is being created for them.
