walker-WEDCMILWAUKEE - The FoxConn deal just gets worse and worse.

This week, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) delayed voting on the deal because they found a problem. They won't tell us what was wrong, but one member of the board described the problem as a "nuclear bomb."

Wow.

andy-gronikEarlier this year, Andy Gronik said that if he were a board member, and Governor Scott Walker brought him the Foxconn deal as a CEO, he'd fire him -- and the WEDC is proving that he would have made the right decision.

We don't know how bad the mistake in the contract is, because the WEDC is keeping it private, and the voting will happen in a closed session. That's not how it should be. With a deal this controversial and this critical to Wisconsin's future, we all should get a chance to see what we're signing up for.

Andy Gronik is calling on the WEDC to publicly release the FoxConn contract, and hold a public session for feedback on the deal. Join him and add your name to the petition.

In the effort to ram the Foxconn deal through, lawmakers almost signed a contract that "would not have protected taxpayers whatsoever."

You read that right -- lawmakers were more focused on another big corporation coming to Wisconsin than the hardworking folks who already live here.

As a successful progressive businessman, Andy Gronik has walked factory floors with workers and has appraised hundreds of manufacturing businesses. If Governor Walker had taken the same approach and listened to the workers of Wisconsin, he'd know that this deal isn't right.

That's why the WEDC should seize the opportunity to listen to hardworking Wisconsinites for feedback by publicly releasing the deal and holding a hearing to listen to workers.

Add your name now to demand a chance to see the deal that will impact Wisconsin for years to come. Join Andy Gronik.
