This Just In ...

Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.

Finally, a voice for beleaguered property taxpayers


I hope the local tax and spenders in Franklin and all across Wisconsin were listening closely to Governor Walker’s budget address:

In this budget, we provide real tax relief for homeowners across the state by implementing property tax reform that locks in property tax levies at the local level.  Time and time again, I’ve heard from Wisconsinites who are doing more with less and making sacrifices to keep their families going.  Good people like the retired couple on a fixed income or the new parents paying for daycare and the mortgage on their first house or the middle-class working family where mom and dad still have jobs, but keeping them meant taking a pay freeze.  All of them, and others like them across Wisconsin, need true property tax relief and this budget delivers.”

The governor talks about the property tax levy. Late last year, the tax and spenders in Franklin tried to defend their tax and spending ways by attempting to shift public attention to the tax rate which is just about meaningless. It's the levy that really matters.

Finally, a governor that gets it.
