broadband-cableWisconsin's slow Internet speeds and lack of broadband access, as well as Walker's inaction on digital issues, shows Walker is unwilling and unable to move our state Forward.

MILWAUKEE, WI - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Matt Flynn today made the following statement attacking Scott Walker for his poor record on high-speed broadband Internet access in Wisconsin.

matt-flynn"As of 2016, Wisconsin's Internet speeds rank 49th in the nation. There are several counties where high-speed Internet access does not exist. This is unacceptable. High-speed Internet helps small businesses thrive, farmers work efficiently, and students learn. Walker has failed to address our lack of connectivity.

"Our economy is lagging behind other states. Too many of our fellow citizens are leaving Wisconsin to seek better economic opportunities. The slow Internet speeds contribute to our poor economic performance. Better broadband access will spur economic growth and improve the lives of every Wisconsinite.

"Additionally, Walker has provided no leadership on Net Neutrality, the guiding principle of the open and fair Internet we have come to know. Rather than standing up for ordinary people and small businesses, Walker sided with telecom companies, who seek to raise prices and deny access to customers and small businesses.

"As governor, high-speed broadband Internet access will be a right. Speeds in Wisconsin will catch up to the rest of the country. We will restore Net Neutrality."


Matt Flynn is a Navy veteran, attorney, and former Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. He attended law school at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

mike-mccabe"Wisconsin is becoming a shadow of its former self. So much of what made Wisconsin special is being dismantled. I’m having an increasingly hard time recognizing it as the place where I grew up. Never in my lifetime have I seen our government less responsive to regular people. Never have I seen our public institutions so disrespected and distrusted. Never have I have seen both major parties this fouled up. Never have I seen the political establishment so corrupted and out of touch," said McCabe.

He continued, "I am running for governor for one reason and one reason only. To do everything I can to get our government working for all of us and not just a privileged few."
