From The Chippewa Herald:
Jake Leinenkugel has gone to Washington.
The Chippewa Falls native has signed on with the Trump administration, and has been appointed as a senior White House advisor to the Department of Veterans Affairs. He was sworn into the position Friday.
Leinenkugel, who ran Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. for a quarter of a century before retiring two years ago, is looking forward to working on behalf of America’s veterans, said his brother, brewery President Dick Leinenkugel.
“Jake is a veteran; two of his children are veterans. He certainly knows first hand the challenges and opportunities men and women who leave the military face,” Dick Leinenkugel said Monday. “This will allow him to impact the policies that will impact veterans.”
