Statement from the Barrett for Milwaukee Campaign: Lena Taylor’s Misinformation Campaign

Statement by Patrick Guarasci, Senior Advisor at Barrett for Milwaukee

By - Nov 15th, 2019 05:31 pm

Milwaukee ​– Lena Taylor’s allegations are baseless and absurd.

She knows that Tom Barrett fought tooth and nail against a hostile, Republican-controlled legislature and Governor to keep them from ending residency. The facts are clear but instead of telling the truth Senator Taylor is doing what politicians often do—she’s substituting press conferences for real leadership and offers false charges hoping something can stick to her opponent and advance her political career.

That’s not going to happen here. The facts are that when Tom Barrett was fighting for Milwaukee 6 years ago, Senator Taylor was sadly ineffective in stopping her Republican legislative colleagues from ending residency and punishing the city of Milwaukee.

    I hope that every news outlet, print, radio and web-based, will call her out on this. 180 degrees from true. Unacceptable and we should all be concerned about press conferences like this.
