The WWMA would like to congratulate Bob Stobb for his 26 years as a weights and measures inspector for the state of Wisconsin. Bob started there in May 1997 and will be leaving us in October to start new endeavors.
During his time here Bob has made significant contributions to the program. He was instrumental in the use of marine fuel carts that many of us use today. Bob actually designed and had built our first prototype marine cart. It was a proven success, which resulted in the department supplying marine carts to every state inspector. Before we had computers, Bob was the first to field test a laptop and WinWam software.
Bob initiated and was the lead inspector for many large investigations, including seafood glazing and outdoor fryer oil.
Bob is a past president of the WWMA.
We thank him for his contributions and accomplishments and wish him the best of luck in his new endeavors!
Please help me in welcoming Brad Lueck to Weights & Measures as the new Inspector for La Crosse and Monroe counties. Brad comes to us from the Meat Bureau where he was a Meat Safety Food Scientist and a Meat Safety Inspector for a combined 10 years. Many of the Weights & Measures team have worked with Brad in the past and he comes to us with great praise. Brad started his new position on Monday 9/25/23.
This week was the WWMA Annual Fall Conferece, held in Appleton, WI. Updates will be coming soon on news and events with the association. Thank you to everyone that helped make this conference happen, and we will be looking forward to more exciting changes next year with Chris Tourdot from the City of Madison as this years WWMA President!
