When I worked for Ozaukee County, time and time again the State of Wisconsin took steps to curb our ability to do our jobs. They set levy and zoning limits, and tried to control the way we ran our meetings. People value local government, made up of their civic minded friends and neighbors. Wisconsinites need local control so our elected school and municipal leaders can promote our values in education and community administration. Levy and zoning restrictions should not be used to keep local citizens from doing what’s right for their communities.
