If you live in the 78th Wisconsin Assembly District, your Representative Mark Pocan wants to hear from you and he wants to hear from you about the “revenue crisis facing our schools.” He’s listening; it is time to speak loud and clear.
In his latest mailing to constituents the last question of his survey reads:
Given the revenue crisis facing our schools, how would you direct additional funding towards K12? (please select one)
____Increase property taxes
____Increase sales tax by 1c under a “Penny for Kids” proposal
____Close corporate tax loopholes
____Redirect current revenue collections towards K12
Other than the “please select one” this is great (I think closing corporate tax loopholes and Penny for Kids should both be in the mix).
If you threw your copy out already, you can download the survey here and mail it to the address included. You can also email him: email@example.com. Do sign the Penny for Kids petition too.
If you don’t live in his district, think about doing it anyway, but indicate where you live or send it to your Rep (Pocan cares — maybe too much — what voters outside his district think).
Don’t let this opportunity go to waste!
