BIZCAST: La Crosse publishers Aubrey, McFarland release new series to help engage in local government

The Ope! Publishing owners started about two years ago, putting out small magazines named zines. Their newest, three-part series tries to help people engage with their government.
Aubrey and McFarland sat down with host Vicki Markussen to talk about how they hope to grow these self-published booklets.
The first in the series is called “Getting a project proposal in front of Council for a vote,” while the second is called “Direct legislation: The way to get questions and/or new laws proposed.”
