Candidate for WI Atty. Gen. Announces Plans for Senior Citizen Advocate

Candidate for State Attorney General Jon Richards is visited Wausau Thursday, announcing his plan to create a Senior Citizen Advocate within the Department of Justice.

At a news conference, Richards explained the advocate's job would be three fold. First, he or she would work with law enforcement on catching and punishing offenders. Second, the advocate would work to help educate seniors on abuse and how to report it. Finally, they would work with the State Legislature to create new laws to protect seniors.
