Letter: Restore funding of the State Historical Society’s Tourism Specialist position at NGLVC

LWVABC sent the letter reprinted below to Representative Beth Meyers, Senator Janet Bewley, the Joint Finance Committee, and MaryAnn Lippert, Director of the Northern Region Office of the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Intergovernmental Relations.

This was MaryAnn's response:

Hi Madelaine –

Thank you for your thoughtful letter on behalf of the Ashland Bayfield League of Women Voters. I appreciate you sharing your concerns regarding funding for the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center, and have forwarded your email on to Governor Walker’s office.

Here in Wisconsin, the Governor’s proposed budget is now in the hands of the legislature, where it will be debated and changed. I’m encouraging all Wisconsin residents who contact me to also contact their legislators and members of the Joint Committee on Finance to voice their opinion.
— Best regards— MaryAnn

Please add your voice to our letter, as MaryAnn suggests!
