(MADISON) – Today, Governor Scott Walker delivered his annual State of the State address. Below is Senator Lena C. Taylor’s (D-Milwaukee) statement about the speech. Senator Taylor serves as the ranking Senate Democrat on the state’s Joint Committee on Finance:

“Today, Governor Scott Walker spent more time talking about the Green Bay Packers than he did about our juvenile justice scandal, our lead water crisis or Wisconsin’s racial disparities. Wisconsin doesn’t need a cheerleader, we need a trailblazer to solve our state’s problems. Today’s speech was just that, a speech. Words don’t solve problems.”
