OK. I just read that article. I don't know anything about this guy. What makes him an environmental wacko? I took a quick look at the 1000 Friends of WI site to see what that was all about and it looks like it has noble goals. However, I know it's their own site and everything will be in their best light.
I'm very pro-environment and think greenspace conservation and ant-sprawl policies are good. Maybe you'd disagree with me. Or, is this new mayor just really anti-market and business. I'm definitely not that.
1000 Friends isn't too highly regarded by Wisconsin Planners. They may have noble goals, but they are clueless on many land use/smart growth issues. I think I remember bturk mentioning this in an earlier thread.
