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.

Franklin taxes keep growing

That's the perception. 

While City Hall seems content to expand sewer coverage in the western part of Franklin, not every resident is pleased. Many are quite upset.

I completely understand their frustration and hope others angered by taxation in Franklin will speak up. Here is an e-mail I received:

We are not in an area that will receive sewer service yet I will be paying additional property taxes on it?  In this economy the absolute disregard for residents in this area is reprehensible.  Our taxes are already so high we have to escrow almost $400 a month.  We are living paycheck to paycheck and the people who have sworn to represent us are instead turning a blind eye.  Do you know what it’s like to have to use your credit card for groceries or take it out of our savings?  Walk a mile in our shoes.  What a laugh, politicians don’t give a darn about their constituents anymore.”

You are preaching to the choir.
