Waukesha County voters are about to make a decision that will seriously affect their own voices.
I just don't get it. In this day when only 8 people represent the entire state of Wisconsin in the House of Reps, when population shifts and redistricting have seriously limited the voice of the people in voting nationwide and when the only voices we seem to have left are at the local level where we have the ability to vote for someone who represents us in small neighborhood groups, Waukesha is about to silence their own voices?!?!
Don't they understand the way our system works? Having someone who represents you and your views in your Government is critical to our Democracy, and yet, they are trying to force the Government to take away their representation, in effect silence their own voices?????
I know Waukesha is an anamoly in it's insane local conservative politics, but I guess they don't teach civics in Waukesha schools. I don't live there, I am not affected in the least by the size of their county board, and yet, I still think it's the strangest thing I've ever seen to have people fighting to remove their own right to representation in their Government.
Good luck with that approach Waukesha, you vote for this crazy referendum, you deserve to not have a voice...
