Welcome to the Issues Identification Survey

In anticipation of our sixth, bi-annual Legislative Days (date not selected, target is Mid March to late April of 2013), I would like to invite you to begin submitting suggestions for agenda items we will take with us to Madison. Anybody can submit an issue, this survey is being sent out to all area nonprofits, business associations and local units of government. Please forward this survey link to others as appropriate.

For those of you who may be new to Legislative Days, the program consists of organizing a delegation of over 100 citizens to travel to Madison for two major purposes:

1) Educate state officials and legislators on an accurate picture of Door and Kewaunee Counties and dispel the widespread misperception in Madison that we are a uniformly wealthy, problem-free area; and

2) Lobby for assistance from Madison that will help us address issues, projects, and opportunities that are uniquely special to Door and Kewaunee Counties and enjoy broad community support.

An ideal issue for Door Kewaunee Counties Legislative Days fits the following criteria:

a) The issue should be “local” and have unique implications for Door Kewaunee Counties (thus avoiding state-wide issues)

b) The issue should enjoy broad community support (controversial issues don’t fit on the agenda because they divide the delegation and dilute our message)

c) Exceeds our local capacity to deal with it. (We need to show we have done all we can locally to resolve the issue, but some type of state action or support is needed)
