Thursday on Lake Effect: voter turnout, new Milwaukee Public Museum position, Aries zodiac, Milwaukee Music Roundup

Today on Lake Effect, we’ll look at how low voter turnout impacts politics in Milwaukee and how to re-engage voters. Then, we’ll chat with the Milwaukee Public Museum’s new director of inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility. Astronomy contributor Jean Creighton joins us to talk about the Aries zodiac, and why the mythology of it is worth exploring. Plus, we'll hear some new music that came out of Milwaukee this month in our Milwaukee Music Roundup.
