“All politics is local.” The late Democratic Speaker of the House “Tip” O’Neal was right about precious little, but in this case, he was on to something. While most of us are conversant about significant state or national issues, we know next to nothing about the activities or core beliefs of our local politicians. Because of this informational void, we have local school boards acquiescing to Common Core and cooperating extensively with WEAC; and we have municipalities and towns dispensing corporate welfare, incorporating Agenda 21-style zoning restrictions, and accepting federal and state bribe money for everything from bike trails to military hardware for local police.
Clearly we are in need of better information and an action mechanism on behalf of less local government. What methods have been tried and proven successful?
As Tuesday, April 22, former legislative chief of staff and current Assembly candidate Bill Savage will describe his efforts and successes educating the voting public and recruiting conservative candidates thru local taxpayer alliances in Hartford, Menomonee Falls, and Waukesha County. Come learn the techniques and benchmarks that Bill has developed for holding local politicians accountable and for running a successful local organization.
Please join us. We meet at noon, order lunch, start at 12:05 p.m., and end at 1:05 p.m. Admission is free. Meal purchases and donations are encouraged.

“Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.”
