Half-Measure on MATC Board

It's a start--but not the best 'start.'

A hearing has been scheduled on a bill being pushed by suburban Milwaukee lawmakers to change the makeup of the Milwaukee Area Technical College board.

The hearing will be before the state Assembly's Committee on Colleges and Universities at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in Room 225NW of the state Capitol.

Sponsored by Rep. Mark Gottlieb (R-Port Washington) and Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills), the bill requires that at least one of the nine members of the MATC board be a resident of a county other than Milwaukee County.

The word "ELECTED" does not appear in the brief story.

So Taxation Without Representation will continue, for the time being.
