One Week Until Election Day, State Treasurer Referendum!

Election Day in Wisconsin is just one week away!

There are many local races taking place across Wisconsin for school board and local governments, and two statewide issues--the State Supreme Court race and the referendum to eliminate the state treasurer (question 1). 

WEMTA Opposes the Treasurer Referendum 

WEMTA has opposed legislative efforts to eliminate the state treasurer. We believe that replacing the State Treasurer with the Lieutenant Governor on the BCPL jeopardizes our founding fathers’ commitment to maintaining a constitutionally protected form of school library funding.

As envisioned by our founding fathers, current BCPL Commissioners do not play a leading role in K-12 school funding or the state budget process—this makes them ideal custodians of the Common School Fund and helps protect the integrity of the fund.
