WAUSAU - It can be easy to feel like you don't have much of a say in politics.
But several Democratic state lawmakers wanted to hear what their constituents think of the state's checkbook.
Northwoods residents voiced their opinion at a budget listening session in Wausau.
One of the main issues was Governor Walker's Education funding.
Representative Mandy Wright is a former teacher.
She's worried school in her district, Wausau, won't get a fair shake.
"All of the schools actually that were failing have high levels of poverty and high level of needs for their students and families," Wright said.
"So as we see job loses, as we see our economy not recovering the way we'd like to, we're very concerned about seeing voucher expansion which pulls money away from our public schools and funds an entirely separate school system."
Representative Wright says there will be another listening session Tuesday at Northcentral Technical College starting at 6:30 p.m.
LINCOLN COUNTY - A Tomahawk man accused of sending explicit emails to a 15-year-old girl appeared in court Monday.
Joshua Dewitt is charged with multiple counts, including soliciting a child for prostitution and child enticement. The investigation started last November, when a mother accused the 29-year-old of sending inappropriate emails to her teenage daughter.
