Newsmakers: Surviving the Recession

The recession forced new, difficult decisions on all segments of Wisconsin’s economy. In the first of a new WisconsinEye series, Surviving Recession, five leaders of local governments talk about the broken system that forces them to rely on shared-revenue payments from the state and property taxes to pay for critical programs. Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz, Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, Milwaukee County Supervisor John Thomas, Curt Witynski of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and Mark O’Connell, executive director of the Wisconsin Counties Association, discussed long-range changes in that funding system.
