a note from SPARC member Heather DuBois Bourenane
The August 10, 2012 issue of The Isthmus features a cover story I wrote on local politics here in Sun Prairie: “The Battle for Sun Prairie: Progressives and conservatives fight for the soul of the suburb.” What started out as an opinion piece developed into a feature as I interviewed more and more people, learned volumes about what’s going on at City Hall and beyond, and got an even keener sense of how ready people are in Sun Prairie to start paying more attention to local government and getting more involved. I hope it opens up honest dialogue and encourages people to get more involved no matter their political perspective. I blogged about writing the piece here, and invite anyone who wants to get more involved to email us at SunPrairieAction@gmail.com. All are welcome! Get involved. Local action works!
