Most Disappointing Thing in the Past Year

When we asked readers to cast their votes in this category, they let us know they weren’t mad – just disappointed. At the top of their list was the concern that we seem to be building “too many luxury apartments, not enough affordable housing.” Next up was readers’ disappointment over attempts at book banning in area schools (although, fortunately, we’re not aware of any successful local book bans). And some readers are still sore that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers was re-elected, demonstrating that even someone as mild-mannered as Evers is divisive these days. –Tom Giffey
