Records Laws Should Not Be Changed:
been fairly clear on my position regarding changes to
the open records law. I oppose any changes that
would make receiving information more difficult.
What our elected officials are doing and how they are
doing it should be something we all should concern
ourselves with. We should not make these records
harder to obtain. Having that said, the selective
outrage of changing the open records laws while Hillary
Clinton and Lois Lerner blatantly violated the law is interesting.
Once again the media provides cover for the left. I will
remain consistent.... Open Government is Best For
County ID Cards:
Milwaukee County is planning on issuing
identification cards to residents of Milwaukee County and it seems that
anyone will be able to get them including people who are
in the country illegally. A county board resolution to label the
cards as not valid for voting purposes has failed. It is
these types of efforts to undermine the integrity of our
elections and create incentives for those who violate
our laws that cause division and mistrust between
groups. Insisting that everyone follow our laws is
not unreasonable. I have begun the process of
drafting a bill that would require municipalities that
issue identification cards to mark them as "not valid for voting
purposes" in a clear and readable fashion.
Capitol Christmas Tree:
One of the
many wonderful changes Governor Walker made when he took
office was to bring back the Christmas Tree to
Wisconsin's Capitol. The Tree never went away but
Scott Walker's predecessor Governor Doyle changed the
name to "The Holiday Tree" so as to not offend
non-Christians. The custom of decorating a tree
for Christmas is clearly a Christian tradition. There
is enough room for everyone here at the Capitol, during
Hanukkah there was a large
Menorah on the first floor in the rotunda area.
Wisconsin Family Action has provided a Nativity scene also located on the first floor.
Regardless of who you are or where you come from may
your days be filled with happiness and joy.
God Bless Wisconsin!
