WCTA leads fight to oppose Milwaukee arena tax

Waukesha County Taxpayers Association endorsed Supervisor Jennifer Grant introduced the resolution to oppose a regional tax for a Milwaukee arena.

WAUKESHA – Top Waukesha County officials next week will consider crafting a resolution opposing a regional tax on the county for a new sports and entertainment arena, County Board Chairman Paul Decker confirmed Wednesday.

Countywide Waukesha Taxpayer Group Forming

For Immediate Release:

For more information call Bill Savage (414) 218-0959                                        

The members of the Menomonee Falls Taxpayers Association (MFTA) have decided to form a new organization, the Waukesha County Taxpayer Association (WCTA) that will address the issues that affect taxpayers at the county level.

According to MFTP President Steve Welcenbach, the success of the Menomonee Falls based group has triggered the effort on a county wide basis.  “We are looking forward to working at the county level to help reduce the size of government and protect the taxpayers,” Welcenbach said.

Bill Savage, who is expected to become the Executive Director, issued this statement.

“The Taxpayer groups that I have been involved in have always served as an information source for voters in the spring elections.  Since these elections are not subject to party primaries candidates are basically on an honor system regarding their conservative philosophies.  That hasn’t always worked out so well for the taxpayers.  We will be monitoring the voting records of our elected county and local officials.  We will be informing the public on where they stand on the issues.  Groups like this keep officials honest. It makes for good government.”
