DOING THINGS THE RIGHT WAY
How many times have you watched or read a story about
a dispute between a small business person and a government
agency? The disagreement is usually acrimonious with
elements of unfairness and inflexibility.
It's easy to get worked up.
Well it looks to us exactly the opposite occurred
recently with all involved acting with mutual respect
and a desire to do the right thing.
How refreshing is that?
Madison chef and restaurateur
Dan Fox had been inadvertently
in violation of some state regulations at his pig
Fox, who turns out some terrific products from responsibly
raised pigs, thought he was doing everything right.
But even if it was right to him it was a violation
and the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer
Protection told him to stop delivering his products
to more than a dozen Milwaukee and Madison restaurants.
It all seemed to go pretty smoothly once we met with
him and explained things.
