MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin League of Municipalities is excited to announce a statewide campaign aimed at telling the story of the impact of the proposed cuts to the shared revenue program.
The Save Shared Revenue campaign encourages residents and community leaders to get more involved with League and it’s efforts to protect the vital services our local communities provide.
It will include a regular series of blog posts, a Twitter feed to keep members up to speed and paid advertising campaign to include radio, mail and TV spots.
“The focus of our campaign is to better inform the municipal leaders of Wisconsin and to give them a forum to be heard,” said Joshua Morby, spokesperson for the League.

For more than 90 years, the shared revenue program has been a critical part of Wisconsin’s system of state and local finance to help pay for local services like police and fire protection, park and rec programs, and more.
