Keynote Speaker: Todd Berry has been President of the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance (WISTAX) since 1994. WISTAX, and Todd, fervently believe that, more than ever, voters and taxpayers need objective, factual information about their government. Prior to joining the Alliance, Todd combined private business experience with service in state and local government. For 10 years, he was a marketing executive for one of the state’s oldest food manufacturers. In the late seventies and early eighties, he was Wisconsin’s Assistant Secretary of Revenue. Berry has served on a number of gubernatorial and legislative commissions and task forces, among them the 2000 Kettl Commission. He also served on the Dane County Board, the Jefferson School Board, the CESA #2 Board of Control, and the North Central College Board of Trustees, Naperville, Illinois. With bachelor’s and doctoral degrees from UW-Madison, Todd is a loyal and committed "Badger." He also holds master’s degrees from Harvard University and the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. Todd, and his wife, Margaret Lewis, have 3 adult children and reside in Middleton, Wisconsin, where their lives are run by a typically bossy Welsh Corgi.
