LETTER: Donors united against shady action by Stroebel and his ilk

To Ozaukee Press:

The comments from State Sen. Duey Stroebel criticizing Gov. Evers’ decision to support the full $2.3 million grant to the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust for the Cedar Gorge Clay Bluffs project added insult to injury.

If the Joint Committee on Finance had acted responsibly and transparently, the governor’s action would not have been necessary.

The five projects that Evers rescued have been vetted and approved by the DNR through the Knowles Nelson Stewardship Fund. The continued failure of the Joint Committee on Finance to support conservation efforts in our state is reprehensible.

It is even more egregious because objections have been lodged anonymously with no public hearing and no chance to evaluate whether the objections are legitimate or not.

Many people have donated to the Cedar Gorge Clay Bluffs project to right a wrong committed by the members of the Joint Finance Committee. Like me, these donors are not the mega-billionaires who have unlimited funds. My yacht is a Coleman canoe. My trips to outer space are watching reruns of Star Trek.

I think Senator Stroebel needs to look in the mirror and ask himself who is the better steward of the natural resources of the State of Wisconsin? News flash—it’s Gov. Evers!
