The next Two Bald Guys: How Local Government Is Changing the Face of America

With Jerry Deschane, executive director of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities

Local municipalities are facing unique challenges and are charting new courses in policy that used to be dominated by state and national government. From health mandates to broadband initiatives to policing reforms – the significance of local government has grown. This raises the question: How is “Mayberry” meeting the “Beltway”?

Watch “Two Bald Guys” this Friday at noon to hear the answer to that question and more. We will be joined by Jerry Deschane, executive director of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, to talk about the changes and challenges local municipalities face in 2021.

  • What opportunities and challenges are these changes presenting for local government?
  • Can we identify some of the ingredients to successful governance at the local level in this era of change?
