The people of northeast Wisconsin should be ashamed of supporting Senator Tiffany and his McCarthy-esque attack on science and education programs at Wisconsin DNR.
His petty vendetta against people who are serving the public good is absolutely pathetic. Those DNR scientists and educators who are losing their jobs have contributed greatly to supporting the economy of the North in many ways. Senator Tiffany’s blaming scientific management for the drop in deer numbers, which in reality was caused by a very severe winter in 2013-2014, is absurd, but apparently residents there do not care.
They need to feel just a small part of the economic pain that DNR staff being laid off are feeling due to Senator Tiffany’s inability to accept facts that clash with his narrow world view. To that end, I and others are working to convince as many people as we can to vacation in northwest Wisconsin, and not support the economy of Senator tiffany’s district. I will do so unless and until all those DNR positions are restored.
