The state Assembly took some time on Tuesday to honor the man who’s directed the Badger Band since 1969.
“I can’t really express in words how thrilled I am, and how honored I am to be here today,” Mike Leckrone said.
And a tip of his band cap to lawmakers who managed to come together on something.
“Perhaps my greatest achievement today is the fact that I was able to get Democrats and Republicans voting on the same proposal,” Leckrone said.
He credited his wife, and “band members past and present” for his success. Band members performed “On Wisconsin” and “Varsity.”
