Editorial: What we can do together to address shared concerns for safety

Editorial Agenda: Shared Concerns and Safety

MADISON, Wis. — Our editorial agenda for 2020 is about what we, citizens and communities and institutions can do together to address shared concerns and we start with safety.

Everyone wants to feel safe. We want to know that the air we breathe and the water we drink is clean. We want to feel safe in our homes and our neighborhoods. We want to trust our public safety providers and the wise use of our tax dollars to support these vital services. And we want to feel comfortable in public places and our civic buildings.

These conversations involve leadership like our new police chief, a community dialogue on our relationship to law enforcement, privacy and technology issues, and the role of government in managing chemicals and contaminants in our environment. We’re going to follow these issues especially closely in 2020 and to give you the information and tools you need to know you and your families are safe. Tomorrow’s shared concern is school.
