Hi, I’m The GovFreak. I’m a government/political journalist covering local, county, and state government business. I’m currently freelance for a number of Wisconsin publications.
I’ve worked at a country/western radio station in Northern Wisconsin, had The Lakeland Times banned from the Lac du Flambeau reservation after exposing Native American graft and corruption, and covered pretty much everything at THE-BEE in Phillips, WI and for Superior Publications, based in Superior WI. My last steady gig was with ThirdCoast Digest in Milwaukee, an on-line news, art and lifestyle magazine.
I’ve always been a follower of the news, having been forced to read the two dailies in my hometown from the time I could sit upright and watch Uncle Walter on CBS.
As you read my pieces, you’ll realize I cover the news straight down the middle, letting the facts and wackiness speak for themselves. When I do put my two cents in, I lean convservative/libertarian, facing off the liberal wackiness on all sides.
