WISCONSIN MATC BOARD Shake Up Ping
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
What we really need is an elected board for MATC. Right now the board is appointed according to an arcane formula and they are not responsive to the electorate at all, bucause they don’t need to be. The share of our tax bill that goes to MATC is the lion’s share and rises each year, no matter what else is happening.
Mark Belling had a great rant on this yesterday. My favorite was the caller who wanted to learn welding only to have to take social studies classes (how pathetic).
I tell the teenagers I know that if they become a welder, plumber, HVAC engineer, or electronic techician they can write their own ticket.
