Paul Fanlund: Among Madison’s elite, racism has a subtle edge

Through my decades in town, but especially since my involvement in the Justified Anger movement born in the aftermath of the Rev. Alex Gee’s essay by that title in the Cap Times in late 2013, I have come to realize that African American-led initiatives in this city face greater scrutiny than do projects and programs led by whites.

Howard Marklein: Session recap and the State of the State

Despite the Governor’s criticism during the State of the State address on January 22, 2020, the legislature has been hard at work on bi-partisan, important legislation that solves problems.

Matthew Rothschild: Evers pushes nonpartisan redistricting

Gov. Tony Evers did the right thing in his State of the State Address by promoting nonpartisan redistricting. In doing so, he gave a boost to the grassroots activists all across the state who are building a powerful movement to ban gerrymandering.

James Wigderson: Bryan Kennedy throws a tantrum

If Kennedy and Sullivan were so incompetent that they couldn’t oversee the collection of nomination signatures by their campaigns, how does anyone expect either of them to run the largest county in the state?

Dave Zweifel: Somehow, Trump still finds ways to surprise us with his lies

Scott Walker: Wisconsin voters aren’t buying what Democrats are selling

Donald Trump is delivering the results that Wisconsinites want, while the Democrats vying to run against him are obsessing over issues that don’t matter to ordinary Americans.

Republicans surely will be dismissive of this reform idea as it came from the Democratic camp. But they should not be scornful of the folks across the state who are tired of being the pawns of partisan-hungry lawmakers.

James Wigderson: Evers’ redistricting plan far from “nonpartisan”

Let’s dispense with the “nonpartisan” nonsense. If it’s a commission appointed by Evers, by its very nature the commission is a partisan Democratic commission.

Bruce Murphy: Did Chief Morales target his FPC boss?

Common Council concerned. “Borderline frightening” use of police power, Bauman charges.

Craig Thompson: Looking forward, looking back

As we move ahead into 2020, and beyond, we will continue to look for innovative and cost-saving ways to take care of the roads and bridges that connect us and to expand what our infrastructure offers.

Dan O’Donnell: The weaponization of impeachment

Impeachment is no longer a solemn, powerful remedy for presidential malfeasance; it’s a political weapon that the opposition can’t wait to wield.

Steven Walters: Republicans target Democrats in Trump districts

Republicans last week targeted Dem Reps. Vruwink, Myers and Doyle.

Janet Bewley: New Year’s resolutions

It’s easy to get caught up in hot button issues, but we need to concentrate on the things that can bring us together.

James Wigderson: Wisconsin’s 7th CD deserves better than a swamp creature
