New Kid's View

Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.

There’s a $6 billion dollar hole in the 2009-2011 state budget.

This could mean major service cuts and higher property taxes.

The Governor and legislature reduced this deficit by closing some corporate tax loopholes and updating our tax system. But more funds are needed to maintain local services and prevent further increases to local property tax and fees. Now is the time to learn about and discuss other revenue proposals.

Come join with your neighbors and legislators.

Together, we can protect our community by finding better solutions to the state budget deficit.

Join Us!
