Letter: Ellsworth welcomes Joint Finance Committee in style

As co-chairs of the Joint Committee on Finance, we would like to thank everyone who came out to make their voice heard at the public hearing on Wednesday, April 19, at Ellsworth High School. We truly appreciate the time many of your took to come and testify.

We'd also like to thank Ellsworth High School for hosting the hearing. There's a lot that goes into public hearings and the folks in Ellsworth did a fantastic job. We are very grateful for all they did.

The statewide public hearings are an important part of the budget process. It gives us a chance to hear directly from the people of Wisconsin how the budget will affect them. It's crucial in our decision making and we are very pleased with the number of people who turned out.

For those of you who couldn't make it on Wednesday, we'd still love to hear from you. Please forward your comments to

Thanks again for your hospitality and most of all for your comments. We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
