Sup. Steve F. Taylor Blasts Jursik’s Letter to U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson

Says Supervisor Jursik’s Letter to Johnson on Iran “Way Out of Line”

By - Mar 12th, 2015 03:31 pm

Milwaukee County Supervisor Steve F. Taylor said today that a letter from Supervisor Patricia Jursik to U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson criticizing Johnson’s letter to leaders in Iran is “an embarrassment to the County Board.”

“Why would a sitting U.S. Senator care about what a Milwaukee County supervisor has to say about Iran?” Taylor said. “The fact that her letter went out on County letterhead is an outrage. It’s way out of line. Milwaukee County supervisors have no business interfering in foreign affairs. What does our foreign policy in Iran have to do with her duties as a supervisor?

“It’s things like this that give the entire County Board a bad name.”

    Ah irony. This extremely brief press release is as pointless as the press release it’s objecting to. Keep up the stellar work!
