Thanks to Those Who Testified at Budget Hearings So Far

IMG_0817School board members, administrators and other public school advocates had a strong showing at the first three public hearings of the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee (JFC) last week in Platteville, West Allis, and Berlin.

We would like to recognize those school board members who took the time to testify (some traveling significant distances and taking off of work) and have their voices heard.  The press also quoted several school board members in their stories on the hearings:
