Each year our DNR and the Wis Conservation Congress holds a 'Fish and Wildlife'public hearing in each county in the State to get the public's input on a variety of questions. Prior to the actual meeting, elections are held to appoint delegates to the congress. These delegates work with the Departments to insure our natural resources remain in tact for us and for future generations. Working against us sportsmen, and similar to the 'antis' movement, there are members of a so called Green Party, bent on assuming control of delegations for the congress. Last year they managed to get two women elected to the congress. They did it by soliciting students from the area college, which are then labeled residents of our county, to vote for them. They lured them to the meeting by having a huge number of pizzas delivered to the meeting, and handing them out for free. It was a giant pizza party in return for their votes. This year there are again women from the green party ready to take control of the congress. This year, however, those in charge of this meeting have learned they did not know about certain rules for college students which may have prevented the students from voting last year. So tonight, hopefully, these unknown rules will be applied, and the pizza party scheme to attract votes will backfire. I'll let you know how things went. Good luck to us.
