Last summer, we started running our community columnists and indicated that we'd solicit a new crop of writers in about a year. It's that time.The 700 words thing will be a bother. On the other hand, I can be as cool as Rick Esenberg.
We chose 17 last year. This time, we're going to choose 20 or more to afford more flexibility.
We're seeking a range of people who reflect the region's ethnic, racial, geographic, gender, age and political diversity. That means liberals, conservatives and those who defy labels, and people from all over the Milwaukee metropolitan area.
