Conservative energy group launches
The Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum (wiscef.org) has been formed to find an “all-of-the-above” approach to energy.
According to a release, WISCEF “seeks to be a long missing voice for conservatives in the state’s energy policy discussion.”
Its leadership council includes former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson; Ryan Owens, UW–Madison professor of political science; Debbie Crave, vice president of Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese; Matt Neumann, president of Neumann Companies Inc. and Sunvest Solar Inc.; Jon Hochkammer, outreach manager of the Wisconsin Counties Association; Mark Honadel, former GOP state representative and chairman of the Assembly Committee on Energy and Utilities; and Jake Margis, chairman of the Wisconsin Young Republicans.
WISCEF is “hoping to spur a dialogue and provide a vehicle for individuals, organizations, and businesses to join the conservative conversation about Wisconsin’s energy future.”
