COWS’ successful recent events in Green Bay are paying off in multiple ways. Larry Smith, UW Green Bay Assistant Professor of Social Change and Development, is motivating students and community members behind the Sustaining Wisconsin project. Larry’s commitment to social change is rivaled only by his commitment to noon basketball games on the UWGB campus, where he also networks with other UWGB staff about prospects and possibilities.
Sustaining Wisconsin is not a poll-driven campaign, but rather a public education project driven by our state’s challenges and the public’s desire for better, more useful policy-oriented information. Nevertheless, a recent poll released by WisPolitics.com, Wisconsin’s premiere on-line news service (http://www.wispolitics.com), conducted by Madison-based Wood Communication Group, reveals some interesting information about Wisconsinites and their thoughts on issues, government and the economy.
