As part of the President’s Speaker Series, Council President Willie Hines, Jr. has invited Senator Russ Feingold to address the Common Council on September 2nd. There is a reception before the meeting at 8:30 a.m., followed by the meeting at 9:00 a.m. The meeting and reception are both open to the public.

Feingold recently boldly stated his support for protecting the Great Lakes

“These shippers should know that we’ll do what it takes to protect the Great Lakes, and nothing should be completely taken off the table.” Read more.

If one questions the strengths of Feingold’s convictions they need only to look at his adamant opposition to bills like FISA and the Patriot Act where he was labeled a “maverick” for standing virtually alone in protecting the rights of all of us in Wisconsin and the rest of the country.


One thought on “Senator Russ Feingold to Address Milwaukee Common Council”

  1. Daryl Rauterkus says:

    Dear Sir,
    Please do NOT bailout the Big 3 automakers.

    The U.S. automakers have been declining for decades. This is due to poor business choices…
    Over-paid management
    Union labor costs
    Engineers ignoring energy concerns
    Ignoring foreign competition

    To remain competitive every business in the U.S. must address these business practices. Ignoring their own problems and asking the government to bail them out is simply not acceptable.

    The U.S. automakers would simply waist the bailout money, and do nothing to change their situation.
    Thank you.
