Thursday on Lake Effect: Local Governments, Futurism, Oldest & Youngest Wisconsin Legislators

Aug 29, 2019

Thursday on Lake Effect

Wisconsin has more than 3,000 local governments. We look at the history of these governments and how consolidation could impact local communities. Then, a futurist sums up how we should prepare for what's to come. And a conversation with Wisconsin's oldest legislator, 92-year-old Senator Fred Risser, and Wisconsin's youngest legislator, 20-year-old Representative Kalan Haywood.
