Freeways benefit Milwaukee as well as the burbs

As a long time reader of your publication, I'm well
aware of the liberal slant of your stories, including
your anti-freeway views.  It would be nice if you
realized that these roadways do not solely benefit the
suburbs, but also serve Milwaukee as well.  I've lived
in a highrise on Prospect on the East Side for a
couple of years and commute to Sussex, where I've
worked for 19 years.  I recently saw my new next-door
neighbor one morning wearing a Quad/Graphics shirt; it
turns out she is a plant scheduler at their Sussex
plant not more than 200 yards from the facility I
work.  If we did not have an adequate freeway system,
I would imagine that neither of us would be living on
the East Side.  I think the freeways tie us together
and make us more dependent on each other than you

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
