America's Future

The Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS), in partnership with the Marathon County Public Library and the T. B. Scott Free Library, will be conducting four deliberative community forums on topics of how to enhance America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century.
These four forums are designed to gather public input on important questions about federal budget priorities, and how we should as individuals and families take charge of our financial future. Citizen comments will be shared with federal officials and policymakers through an initiative by the National Issues Forum Institute and the Kettering Foundation. Leading the forums will be John Greenwood, WIPPS outreach consultant, and Shawn Igers and Matt Froom, UW-Marathon students leaders.
Two community forums will be offered for each of two topics important to American prosperity and United States citizens. Please note that each forum will be capped at 18 participants. Refreshments will be served at the forums. For more information or to register, contact Connie Nikolai at 715-261-6368 or by email at
Forums dates at T. B. Scott Library in Merrill will be:
• January 14, 2016, 6:30-8 p.m. America’s Future: What Should Our Budget priorities Be?
• February 11, 2016, 6:30-8 p.m. Making Ends Meet: How Should we Spread Prosperity and Improve Opportunity?
