This will be the very last blog post for the year 2009. All of us at Smoke-Free Wisconsin are going to take some time off and recharge for next year. 2010 is going to be a big year in many ways. The movement for tobacco prevention and control in Wisconsin saw big victories and big defeats this past year. That is not to say that we did not make progress and overcome these challenges.
2010 will bring smoke-free air, many new chances for people to find their way to successfully quit, and new education to communities all across Wisconsin on the dangers of Big Tobacco and its dirty tricks.
As we reflect on the year 2009 it has been a great year. We won so much and made lasting change in our communities. I am proud to be a part of that change and proud to think that I will have made a lasting impression on this great state in the form of a smoke-free workplaces law.
Happy Holidays and to a safe, happy and SMOKE-FREE New Year!
Thank you for making this year great!
