I wish the Franklin School Board could be more like the one in New Berlin

It’s budget time all across Wisconsin. That means city, village, town, county budgets and school district budgets.

In New Berlin, there’s a healthy and informational discussion going on amongst New Berlin school board members about the upcoming school district budget. School board members are being open, honest, and candid.

Take a look.

Then there’s Franklin.

As a public service to Franklin citizens who read my blog and pay exorbitant taxes, let’s check out what our elected school board members in Franklin are saying publicly about what every taxpayer deserves to know: information pertinent to next year’s school budget.


Dave Szychlinski

The head man. The guy in charge. The leader.

Public statements about the school budget: NONE



Vice President
Debbie Larson

What? Me?

Comment publicly about school taxes?




Jeff Traylor





Linda Witkowski




Janet Evans

I have not one, but two blogs. On my FranklinNOW blog, I won't say BOO now that I'm elected.

On the Franklin School District website, I said, "In order for success to be realized, open communication between citizens, the Board, and the administration is essential."

Hey, that's wonderful, isn't it.

What does Janet Evans, the former never-shy,  now turned Barney have to say about the budget?

Do you hear crickets?

But you can always talk with her eminence 20 minutes before any meeting.



Judith Bialk


She may not say a word until 2012.



David Works

Nothing so far.

Oh.  They'll talk for sure, right around October when they vote to jack up your school taxes. Between now and then, I'll bet they avoid any such discussion.

If I'm so wrong (and so terrible) prove me wrong and say something, anything. Don't do it for me. Do it for the taxpayers.
