Important Referendums/Issues:

Save our Fiscal Watchdog: vote NO on the Constitutional Amendment to eliminate office of State Treasurer.

Due to Walker’s cuts to education, many local areas have had to pass operational referendums to continue to operate schools. Delavan/Darien is next – on April 3 we will be asked to vote to raise property taxes slightly to exceed state-imposed revenue limit for funding annual school operations.
