Racine County Local Economic Development Efforts Diminished by Presidential Reelection Stunt


By - May 8th, 2024 12:25 pm

Madison…“Today’s exciting announcement of Microsoft’s plan to create thousands more jobs in Racine County has very little to do with President Biden and everything to do with the efforts of local elected officials, local economic development leaders and Microsoft, itself.

“Today should have been an acknowledgement of the hard work of Mount Pleasant President Dave Degroot and the Mount Pleasant Village Board for having the foresight to build this field of dreams. It should have also been a thank you to Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave and Racine County Board members who made the investment.

“Instead, much like he’s asked us to ignore how much we pay in groceries and gas every week to credit him for what he maintains is a strong economy, President Biden is now asking us to ignore their efforts so he can take all the credit in an invite-only reelection stunt.”
