Madison Mayor, leaders to hold public meeting about Walker's budget


MADISON (WKOW)--  Mayor Dave Cieslewicz and leaders from the Madison College, Dane County and the state legislature will gather for a community meeting on Governor Walker's State Budget.

The meeting is Wednesday, March 30 from 6:00 to 9:00pm at Madison Memorial High School.

"Scott Walker has tried to divide us, first with his budget repair bill and now with the drastic cuts in his budget. That's not how we do things in Madison. When we face major challenges, we bring people together to solve them," Mayor Cieslewicz said. "When I heard about the drastic cuts in this budget, I reached out to the county, Madison College and our state legislators so that we can work together as a community and unite our response to this budget."

At the meeting, officials will share information about impacts of the budget on local government and schools and take comment from the public. Written comment, as well as video of the meeting will be sent to Governor Walker and the Joint Finance Committee leadership.
