Last year, The Wheeler Report, the leading legislative news service covering the Wisconsin legislature, along with the Wisconsin Counties Association and the League of Wisconsin Municipalities began a new podcast – #LocalGovMatters – to discuss issues important to local government.

In the most recent episode (June 5, 2019), the #LocalGovMatters podcast was joined by Neil Stechschulte, WEDA member and Director of Economic Development for the City of Sun Prairie, and Abby Attoun-Tucker, the Director of Community Development for the City of Middleton to talk about why housing is an important part of the community and how cities include housing in their development plans. Abby and Neil both highlighted the need for affordable housing and the need for employers in their communities to have affordable housing for their employees which is close and accessible.
