This 70-Year-Old Republican Mayor Wants to Prove That His Small Southern Town Can Go Green 24.5.2018 Mother Jones
Last year, Mayor Greg Lemons counted every single street light in Abita Springs, Louisiana, and found there were 256. If his town of about 2,900 residents switched over to solar-powered lamps and LED bulbs, he reasoned, taxpayers could save thousands of dollars and be environmentally conscious.  Street lights are just a part of Lemon’s ambitious plans to make Abita Springs a model of energy efficiency and sustainability. A life-long Republican, he has fought […]

Scott Walker and the Failure of Trickle Down 17.5.2018 American Prospect
Governor Scott Walker speaks with reporters on February 1, 2018, in Madison, Wisconsin.   In January 2011, two new governors took office in the neighboring states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Minnesota’s new governor, Democrat Mark Dayton, had campaigned largely on a platform of taxing the rich to provide the services the state needed.
