The following is a statement from Support Our Schools Wauwatosa (SOS) President and Wauwatosa mom Mary Young in response to Gov. Walker’s event on property taxes in Waukesha today:

“Rural, urban and suburban communities across Wisconsin voted to raise their own local property taxes through school referenda last month because state leaders have failed to adequately fund our kids’ K-12 programs. We urge Gov. Walker and state leaders to support our kids’ public schools, raise state funding and raise the restrictive revenue cap placed on our local school boards.”
