Wisconsin's new GOP Assembly Finance committee co-chair Mark Born
who deserved for his ugly dismissiveness of African-American culture the "racist" label awarded him by Milwaukee State Sen. LaTonya Johnson - had told a reporter when he first ran for office that growing up in Beaver Dam has framed his life's philosophies and interests.
Which included active participation in the local historical society:
Outside of his job, Born is involved in many community groups including the Dodge County Historical Society, where he is vice-president, Beaver Dam Lake Improvement Association, Elk’s Lodge 1540, Leadership Beaver Dam and St. John’s Lutheran Church.
We'd earlier noted Born's proclivity for crapping on people, here, so we're not surprised he'd bully his way into open disrespect for African-American culture, but here's a follow-up question:
If Born is such a devotee of local history, has he ever seen and given a little thought to the meaning and message on this noteworthy plaque in his hometown in 2000, and how it might guide his behavior as an influential state official?
