This Just In ...

Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.

Janet Evans is a true, honest to goodness fiscal conservative


Her opponent in the recall election is not. Thus Janet Evans best fits with the fiscally conservative makeup of her district and the entire city.

Janet Evans consistently acts as a watchdog for the taxpayers. She is taxpayer-friendly. Her opponent who masquerades as a conservative failed over and over again during his years as an alderman where he regularly voted for tax levy increases in the annual budget and never offered budget amendments to cut spending that would have saved taxpayers money.

As a voting citizen, two issues are at the top of my list: Taxation/spending, and public safety.  To demonstrate why I wouldn’t vote for Steve Taylor, here’s a blog I wrote back in February of 2014 when Taylor was running for mayor about a real Whopper.


February 13, 2014

If you haven’t done so already, please consider reading the FranklinNOW article relating answers given to questions submitted to the Franklin mayoral candidates.

Do as I did. Read and determine if the candidates answered specific, direct questions with specific, direct answers in addition to whether or not they answered to your satisfaction. I think it’s pretty obvious who dodged one of the questions. Hint: Recall.

No candidate gave attention grabbing, stunning, holy cow answers, save one.

FranklinNOW surveyed the three Franklin mayoral candidates and here was one of the questions;

“In November, the council unanimously agreed to freeze the tax levy for 2014. If the tax levy freeze is enforced again in 2015, what municipal services would take priority when considering expenditures? Would you approve another freeze?”

Which candidate answered, in part, the following?


“City services are important, especially public safety. Police and fire will always remain off limit as long as I am mayor.”

People who comment on my blog...


Question: How do you possibly try to reason with folks who say they’re not anonymous, and in the very next sentence they say, “I don’t give my identity…”

Answer: DOH! You don’t.

For the record, I'm not a fan of anonymous commenting. Not only me, but my wife and my daughter have been the target/subject of disgusting, hateful e-mails from the warm, fuzzy left.

In an ideal world everyone would have to divulge their identity, including those that agree with my point of view.
