Gogebic Taconite spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to influence Republicans on Wisconsin mining law

I distinctly remember any number of brouhahas over the salaries commanded by a very will respected and very successful Bo Black during her years running Summerfest…but while her successor, Don Smiley, who has allowed attendance to drop although overseeing major improvements in the festival grounds, has been paid three times Ms. Black’s salary, not so […]
