CENTRAL WISCONSIN (WAOW) -- Congressman Dave Obey of the 7th Congressional District is in the area this week, making several stops.

Tuesday, the Congressman was at the Marshield Public Library at 3:30pm, where he was recognized for his work with veterans.

On Wednesday, Rep. Obey will be joined by Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle in Stetsonville.

There, they will be discussing an investment they hope will improve Stetsonville's environment and economy. 

This will take place at 3:30pm at the Centennial Hall on the corner of Highways 13 and A and Newsline 9 will be there.

The investment is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, better known as the stimulus package.

That takes place at 9am.

Following the conference at 10:30am, Obey will be given a tour of the Wausau VA Clinic (513 S. 32nd Ave.), showcasing the improvements they've made there.
