County officials in the state gather this week (Tuesday and Wednesday) in the capital city for lobby day. The Wisconsin Counties Association's number one legislative issue is to relieve the taxpayers of the burden of funding the courts. So says Mark O'Connell, Executive Director of the group. He says the Director of State Courts John Voelker will speak to that issue, and hundreds of officials from throughout the state will put their heads together in Madison.
O'Connell says James Wood, President of Wood Communications will have a fascinating program on our tax structure. And, our governor will address the crowd.
The Realtors Association, Wisconsin Education Association Council and Wisconsin Counties Association will have a round table discussion on how they view the current tax structure.
