Notes From JFC Hearing

By John Forester | April 20, 2017

Yesterday, the Joint Finance Committee held it’s fifth of six public hearings on the 2017-19 state budget bill in Ellsworth.  The SAA was well-represented with the following school superintendents providing testimony:  Barry Cain (Ellsworth), Mary Ann Hardebeck (Eau Claire), James Kuchta (Amery), Mark Luebker (Osceola), Patrick Olson (New Richmond), Bruce Quinton (Pepin), Eric Russell (Baldwin-Woodville), Cathleen Shimon (Clayton), Rick Spicuzza (Prescott), Jerry Walters (CESA 11), and Joe Zydowsky (Menomonie).  Many thanks to these SAA members for their leadership.

For those of you planning to testify at the Marinette hearing, here are my suggestions:

Get there early.  I know the hearing does not start until 10:00 a.m., but if you wish to speak before 1:00 p.m. get there by 7:30 a.m.

We need a strong showing at this final JFC budget hearing.  If you have questions about testifying please call me.

Here is the final hearing location and time:

10 am – 5 pm: Friday, April 21, Marinette High School Auditorium, Marinette
