MADISON, Wis. — One of the tools we’ve used to help us focus our editorials over the last 28 years is an annual editorial agenda. It was a handful of issues we felt deserved added attention, an effort to reflect the issues important at the time. And it was frequently a reminder of what we had yet to accomplish.
In this next to last editorial I am struck by how many issues on our agenda challenge us still. Here’s a few I hope we will make progress on in the next few years.
First reform the redistricting process. This is one of the most important issues we face as a state. Our politics are an ugly, dysfunctional, mess. Too much money is one reason. Unethical gerrymandering is a bigger one.
