Elizabeth Coppola In the 21st! Our public schools depend on it! Broken deals, petulant behavior, single-minded focus on an extreme social agenda at the expense of legislation to put Wisconsinites to work and move our state forward… If you watched last night and this morning on WisconsinEye, read about it in the papers this morning, […]
Recently there has been too many cases of random bullets entering houses. This exact bullet was found in someone’s house, head high, on Sunday Morning. This letter was then sent to others in the neighborhood – Hello, neighborhood folks. Many of you know that our house was hit with a rifle bullet around 11 am […]
Madison is thinking about trying to regulate AirBnB-type rentals. It probably should, but it’d be helpful for them to step back and think about what we’re trying to accomplish. The proposal right now is terrible, but this may be one of the easiest examples ever of where just a little bit of common sense can amend it into something reasonable.

We all know that Scott Walker in his latest budget wants to vastly increase taxpayer money going […]
That is the question Michael Basford, the Chair of the Dane County Democratic Party is asking. I have a little different question.
Tuesday February 19, 2013 is Wisconsin Primary Day! There are only a couple races on the ballot, but these races are very important! 1. The Wisconsin State Supreme Court: There are three candidates Vince Megna, incumbent Pat Roggensack(not a conservative), and Marquette law professor Ed Fallone! The clear choice for me and hopefully for you, […]
Scott Walker will be delivering his third State of the State address tonight at 7pm. Infrastructure is among the five priorities he has been highlighting during the run-up to releasing the budget next month. With his focus on jobs, Scott Walker should be engaged in a thoughtful fact-driven process to determine the mix of infrastructure […]
Today, the newest Wisconsin legislature will be sworn in and then they get to work(which is good because the Wisconsin legislature has not worked since March)! While Scott Walker has said he wants to stay away from such divisive policies as before to focus on jobs(thus proving that his first two years he cared about […]
