matthew_rothschildMADISON - Happy New Year! I hope you had an enjoyable holiday.

We got right back into the swing of things here, posting some interesting articles for you, which I hope you’ll like.

betsy-devosOur “Influence Peddler of the Month” is none other than Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee to head up the Department of Education. You can see how she’s been trying to destroy public education in Wisconsin here:

We also uncovered some news about a timber company, based in Atlanta, that’s gobbling up land in Wisconsin and throwing its weight around:

Meteor Timber's power game in Wisconsin

And I wrote a column denouncing Sen. Tom Tiffany and Rep. Adam Jarchow for a recent tirade they wrote about “so-called environmentalists”:

As far as good news, Sen. Dave Hansen has floated a legislative proposal that would end the practice of partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin:

Dems to offer proposal for new redistricting process

I’m sure we’ll have more for you next week.

Till then, all the best,

Matt Rothschild
Executive Director
