MADISON, Wis. — Dane County Supervisor Ronn Ferrell alleged Tuesday that some of his colleagues are using their power to help Democrats win the November 2014 elections by placing on the ballot a nonbinding resolution regarding the minimum wage.
“This is all to get liberals to the polls,” Ferrell told Wisconsin Reporter.
The referendum question, which asks voters if they believe the state should raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour and is sponsored by 33 of 37 county supervisors, will be considered Thursday by the board’s executive committee. The measure also needs to be approved by the full county board.
