ANTIGO (WAOW)-- Democratic Senator Jim Holperin hosted a public forum in Antigo Friday afternoon to inform area residents about Governor Scott Walker's proposed state budget.
This meeting served as an opportunity for area residents to speak with Senator Holperin, as well as other state representatives and senators, to let them know how they felt about Governor Walker's proposal.
About 60 people gathered at Antigo High School from 3:00-6:00 p.m., and they took turns taking the microphone.
While this was a democratic-run event, it was a bipartisan crowd with varying opinions on the bill.
Senator Holperin says it is an opportunity to get valuable input. This is just one of many meetings like this taking place this month.
