STATEWIDE - We welcome Tim Burns, Citizen Action of Wisconsin’s endorsed candidate for State Supreme Court (primary next Tuesday, February 20) to discuss his novel willingness to run on his progressive values and fight for average people against the big corporate interests that are rigging the system.

We also talk about the latest mass school shooting in Florida and the GOP’s serial appeasement of gun extremists. We also are joined by Citizen Action Western Wisconsin Organizing Cooperative member Sarah Godlewski who educates us about the referendum to abolish the State Treasurer, a move that would further reduce fiscal accountability in Wisconsin government.

milw-state-ofcBuilt in 1963, the current State Office Building on 6th Street in Milwaukee is old and needs to be replaced, but maybe we should combine it with some County functions to save time and money.

MILWAUKEE – Last week, Governor Scott Walker announced his plans to sell state offices in Milwaukee to a private developer and build a new state building in the Milwaukee area. The current state office, located at 819 North 6th Street in downtown Milwaukee, was built in in 1963 and houses multiple state offices and the Governor’s office. State Representative David Bowen (D-10) attended the announcement and released the following statement:

david-bowen“While the Milwaukee State office is aging and needs to be replaced, I’d like to take Walker’s plan for a new facility a step further. In order to ensure that even more taxpayer dollars are saved, I call on Milwaukee County to submit a proposal within the RFP 30 day time period to replace our current state building with one that houses both the state and county offices together in order to save taxpayers more money. The County Safety Building serves important functions and has long been in the category of severely needed replacement.”

“Before my time in the legislature, I served on the county board and am aware of the challenges of budget constraints and Capital improvement challenges at the county level. Placing the county and state in the same new & energy efficient building will help alleviate some of those constraints savings millions that can be invested in other needs.”

walker-terry-gou-foxconn-flagWalker plans to spend $7 Million on recruiting out of state for Foxconn workers while we are losing jobs from major employers like Kimberly Clark say Dems.

martha-laningMADISON - “Taxpayers are being taxed twice for Gov. Walker’s election year stunt,” said Martha Laning, chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. “If we don’t have the workers to fill Foxconn jobs, why is Walker gambling away $4.5 billion taxpayer money to bring Foxconn here when we are losing jobs in our communities from major employers like Kimberly Clark?

“This only serves Scott Walker, who is scrambling to paper over seven years of neglecting our state,” added Laning. “Wisconsinites need a leader who will work every year of their term to make our state a place people want to live, work and grow their business.”
