Jay Kronenwetter brings important issues to the Wausau Mayoral Campaign.

Here are some of them:

Wausau residents have been kept from their own government affairs, in both participation and simple access to policy information.

• Very few people are involved in city planning and policy making.

• Central Wisconsin government bodies have avoided being subject to open records, wage requirements, and public accounting on job creation when using public funds for “economic development” purposes.

• There is insufficient mayoral-oversight of TIF projects, the allocation of taxpayer and other public monies, and the city council’s committee proceedings.

• There is a great need for more living-wage jobs, a consumer-driven economy, and the problem of local income inequality

• There is a great need for adequate, affordable and science-based mental health services for our residents, including services to address our epidemics of heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and alcohol addiction and the resulting strain on our criminal justice system.
