“Just Fix It” was echoed from every corner of the state on Sept. 29 when thousands of local government leaders and concerned citizens brought attention to an issue that has moved to the forefront on their “to do” list — namely finding a sustainable solution to our transportation woes. “Turnout for Transportation” was hosted by local government officials in 70 different locations around Wisconsin. A statewide local government meeting like this had never occurred before in Wisconsin’s 168-year history. That alone should tell people something. The level of frustration over our collective inability to address this most basic function of government spurred our county supervisors, city alderman, village trustees and town supervisors to provide leadership to move the dialogue in a positive direction.
