ron-johnsonMIDDLETON, WI - RFW communications director Michael Tyler issued the following statement after Sen. Johnson aired a new attack ad just hours after last night's tragedy in Nice, France:

"Only hours after the horrific attack in France, when we must pull together as a free society to defeat terrorism, Sen. Johnson sadly continues to mislead, divide, and scare. It’s shameful that Sen. Johnson is so desperate that he keeps resorting to fear mongering in the wake of tragedy and using his chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee to launch partisan attacks, instead of offering real solutions to confront this terror.

"Sen. Johnson has failed to do his job for years and has no strategy other than to point fingers like a typical Washington politician. Russ is committed to combatting terrorism and is the only one with a specific plan to defeat extremists and keep America safe."

road-closed-delayGov. Walker tells Transportation Secretary not to include any tax or fee increases in his budget request for state highway system improvement. As a result, system is going to continue to deteriorate and highway projects throughout the state will be delayed.


MADISON - Recently, former Republican State Senator and current Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow wrote that our transportation system is in crisis. I agree with him. Unfortunately, his former Republican colleagues in the State Senate and Governor Walker think the solution is to let our crumbling infrastructure continue to deteriorate while motorist safety suffers and economic development opportunities are lost.

Under the direction of Governor Walker, the Secretary of Transportation was told that his budget request should not include any tax or fee increases. Walker also says that proposed spending on megaprojects in southeast Wisconsin should be minimized. The result of Walker’s directive, according to the Secretary, is “that the non-backbone system, which is about 90 percent of the state highway system, is going to continue to deteriorate in condition" and “it would delay highway projects throughout the state.”
