He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
This Saturday, the ever-so environmentally conscious folks at the Metropolitan Milwaukee Sewerage District (MMSD) are sponsoring a MEDICINE COLLECTION DAY in four area counties.
Please understand the MMSD says you should NEVER FLUSH OR POUR unused medicine down the drain. Why, that would be bad for Lake Michigan.
So you’re being encouraged to bring prescription medication and over the counter medication to Miller Park on Saturday if you live in Milwaukee County as part of MEDICINE COLLECTION DAY.
Now if only the hypocritical MMSD would care about the billions of gallons of raw sewage they dump into the lake. Then I might be able to take this effort a bit more seriously.
From the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel, May, 2004:
A sailboat makes its way along Lake Michigan in this aerial photo from Chopper Four with power zoom. The discolored water extended past the breakwater; the contents are unknown.
