New Video Reveals Depth of Scott Walker’s Infrastructure Failures
Milwaukee County home to worst road in the state;
his County Courthouse crumbles
MADISON — Scott Walker talks a big game on infrastructure, but his own record is terrible. Milwaukee County’s facilities are literally falling apart under Scott Walker.
Under his failed leadership, nearly $300 million in much-needed repairs and maintenance on County bridges, dams, and buildings have been pushed back, and Walker has let fully-funded highway maintenance positions sit vacant. He oversees the ‘worst road in the state of Wisconsin,’ and now concrete hunks from the County Courthouse – his office – are plummeting to the sidewalk.
A new video highlights Walker’s crumbling courthouse. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lODc3YJ8fFA
“We shouldn’t be surprised with Scott Walker’s infrastructure inadequacies, since he is the guy who supported cutting $6 million for road construction projects while in the state legislature,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate. “While Walker talks the talk, Tom Barrett walks the walk – investing four times more in road investments than Big Talker Scott Walker.”
