Things the Chippewa Valley Has Been Bad At in the Past Year

We could all use some constructive criticism now and again. With that in mind, readers say the Chippewa Valley has been falling flat when it comes to creating decent/affordable housing – ranking the issue No. 1 for the fourth consecutive year. Readers also think we haven’t done enough on a related issue, namely helping the homeless, which once again makes this list. The third-place vote-getter, creating living-wage jobs, would go a long way toward fixing the first two problems. Do better, Chippewa Valley! –Tom Giffey
