Environmental grassroots victory

Conversion or political expedience?
Updated – Whatever the explanation, grassroots activism still matters in central Wisconsin, and when a local citizens’ groups forces a corrupt political opponent to adopt qualified agreement with their positions, the grassroots can claim victory.

Ask Protect Wood County and Rome and Saratoga Friendly and their two-plus years opposition to a proposed massive, Concentrated Agricultural Feeding Operation (CAFO) by the Wysocki corporation in northern Adams and Wood County (and abutting Juneau and Portage counties and the area stream, the Ten Mile Creek) in central Wisconsin….

In this triumph of grassroots activists, citizens have pushed Krug to join Krug’s general election opponent, disability rights attorney Dana Duncan, into opposing the proposed giant CAFO by the Wysocki corporation in a spectacular reversal on Krug’s part who cited soaring level of Ecoli in area lakes (reported last week) and beaches as the rationale behind Krug’s new position.
