I was recently asked to write the cover story for this week’s Isthmus on a highly relevant topic to Wisconsin politics. In this turbulent political climate, Waukesha County has emerged as a statewide influence in Wisconsin fiscal policy, legislation, and politics. The article is an in-depth expose on the multitude of factors effecting this county’s continual shift to the right. It also reveals the background of one of the lesser-known, but key players in this “evolution” – Don Taylor. Key Dane County political players provide a backdrop, and former Speaker-turned-lobbyist Scott Jensen was interviewed, offering a unique perspective. For any progressive, it is a must-read to understand why it is what it is. Through understanding, it may be possible to overcome. Follow the link, and Solidarity!
