Birthday: March 25, 1986
Bio: Sarah Millard's love for journalism began when she was in college working on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus newspaper and freelancing for the Whitewater Register and a handful of other newspapers.
After college, Sarah Millard worked at the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter and the Waukesha Freeman as a reporter before taking a position with Patch.
Sarah Millard loves telling stories about people in the community, sharing their passions, their dreams and their goals. She loves finding the story behind the story, finding out what makes people do what they do or how they lived their life.
In her spare time, Sarah loves playing and watching sports, especially the Green Bay Packers. She also enjoys spending time with friends and family.
At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know.
I generally lean more conservative but like to examine both sides of the issues and learn what the driving forces are behind any given decision.
I attend services at a local non-denomonational church and volunteer as a youth leader.
Local Hot-Button Issues
The city's search for a new water supply is likely to be at the forefront of politics the next several years. I want to present the facts for people to review and make their own decisions.
Shared revenues from the state are going to have an impact on local government agencies, such as the city and the school district, which could mean increased property taxes. I will keep people informed about what those impacts are and what the impacts will mean to them personally.
