Lessons Learned in 2019

State Senator Jeff Smith

This time of year offers an important opportunity to reflect and be grateful for the experiences we’ve earned. It’s been an honor serving as your state senator this year.

About that Voter Purge

ballot

The news ricocheted around the state - 234,000 to be removed from the voter polls. It sounds terrible. Well, it probably is terrible in the sense that as with most of the Republican moves against voter fraud, it is a solution searching for a problem.

Senator Jeff Smith

While it’s not officially here yet, the winter season has come to western Wisconsin. Snow has fallen and temperatures have dropped close to zero.

40 Years of London Calling

The Clash - London Calling (Official Video)

I was reminded on Facebook that the seminal album by the Clash, London Calling, was released 40 years ago today. Oddly, I happened to be listening to the album on the train up from the Google News Initiative Local conference (more on that tomorrow) and did not realize I was taking part in an event.

Good Morning from Lake Wissota…

Another Special Elections Fracas And The Question Of Representation

Gov. Tony Evers
