    Robert Crego & Julie Crego

    WGN coordinators

    Bob and Julie got involved in WGN after meeting Nate at the Capital early in the Scott Walker protests and have remained involved. Bob’s database and app building skills provided WGN with a way to gather data about Wisconsin grassroots groups and help us understand the people who also came into WGN especially thru the festivals. Once Julie joined Bob in retirement, she was able to devote her time more fully in a wide variety of ways. In 2020 Bob and Julie sold their home in Middleton and bought a home in Woodland Park, Colorado. They remain involved in WGN both when they travel to Wisconsin and remotely from Colorado.
