SEWRPC Director Offers Odd Racial Explanation For All-White Planning Committees

I have written f about the dearth of minority representation on the advisory committees that make recommendations on transportation, housing and other important issues managed at the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.

Announcing, finally, the creation of a new committee on economic justice, with several minority members - - designed to deal with the complaints about all-white committees and SEWRPC's need to be genuinely inclusive - - Commission Executive Director Phil Evenson told a reporter he's had a of a hard time getting white people to serve, too.

Even though the committees are 98% white. You figure that out.
