Welcome to Milwaukee, Mr. Walker
Governor who warned voters about evils of this city will now live here.
Oconomowoc Lake – Republican Gov. Scott Walker continued Monday to hammer away at his Democratic rival in the recall election, saying Wisconsin would be taking a major step backward if Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett wins on June 5…
People do not want to see Wisconsin “become another Milwaukee,” Walker said.
I guess he’s changed his mind, now that we’ve got a streetcar. And all the other cool stuff.
As the Channel 58 story headlined it: “Walker to live in downtown Milwaukee after leaving office.”
Maybe within walking distance of the Bradley Foundation?
And Fiserv Forum, where he’ll hang out and Tweet you to death despite the greeting some Bucks fans may give him, given that his grudging, backed-into-a-corner ‘support’ for the new arena and team was built around the lukewarm-at-best slogan “It’s cheaper to keep them.”
Not to mention he can grab Amtrak downtown to Chicago – – snark – – and it’s 25 minutes by car to Foxconn, or to meet GOP Assembly Speaker who-is-absolutely-positively-not-running for Governor Robin Vos for coffee in Racine.
I’ll admit there’s a part of me that thinks this is a practical joke, but if it is true, isn’t it wonderful that Walker can soon call Congresswoman Gwen Moore, who until Tony Evers was the only political figure to beat him, and is now whom Walker can call for federal constituent services?
Assuming Walker’s new boss Trump reopens the government and there are actual services to complain about.
But for the foreseeable future, Walker can get on the phone with Moore’s office and gripe about federal funding for Medicaid, Planned Parenthood, food stamps, and transit.
And he can call Barrett’s office about the property taxes.
