If you want to know how Foxconn will end, look at how Governor Walker handled his Kestrel deal.
"A day before Democrats submitted a petition to recall him in 2012, Gov. Scott Walker flew to Superior to announce a $20 million award for an aviation start-up promising to create 665 jobs and to invest more than $50 million in the state.
Five years later, Kestrel Aircraft has defaulted on its loan repayments after investing $1.4 million and creating 25 jobs, and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. says it is initiating legal action against the company."
This time around, Walker is risking $3 billion of our tax dollars on his re-election stunt. Wisconsin deserves better.
ALERT: WEDC board member Senator Tim Carpenter has officially requested to see the Foxconn contract before the board votes next month to give away $3 billion in taxpayer money. "I find it the height of irresponsibility to be asked to vote on an unprecedented $3 billion dollar deal without first seeing the contract," says Carpenter. We agree. Let Wisconsin’s business community and taxpayers view and vet the deal so we can rest assured that our interests -- not just Walker's political ambitions -- are protected.
