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

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.


  • Jason Stein and Ari Brown, Wisconsin Policy Forum
  • Jack Uldrich, writer and lecturer
  • State Senator Fred Risser, D-Madison; State Representative Kalan Haywood, D-Milwaukee
