”I feel truly honored when I get the chance to highlight the amazing actions of my constituents from the 67thAssembly District. Yesterday, I was proud to recognize Officer Sam Sperry for his heroic efforts and present him with the Hometown Hero Award. “In September of last year, Officer Sam Sperry and his partner, Officer Tre Johnson of Eau Claire, demonstrated what it means to truly be a hero. On that evening, the officers responded to a dangerous situation involving an armed and intoxicated suspect in the city of Eau Claire. They were able to quickly handle the situation with courage and wisdom.”
Officer Sperry voluntarily put himself in grave danger for the sake of his community. His quick decision-making and courage allowed him to restore safety and order to the city and community he cares for. I was proud to honor him with this award.”
