Fresh off his triumphant speaking tour at the President Ronald Reagan Library in California, where he unveiled his vision for the coming Wisconsin legislative session…Governor Scott Walker announced his own listening tour in Wisconsin…all’s well except this from Facebook from our friend Erik Kirkstein:
Yesterday, Scott Walker announced the kickoff of his statewide “Talk with Walker” tour, in which his statement claimed that “For the next several months, the Governor will talk with Wisconsinites about their priorities and ideas for building a better Wisconsin.”
Well, I just got off the phone with Madeline Henry from his office, and that whole thing about “talking to Wisconsinites” actually just means business owners and their employees.
So it’s no coincidence that he waited until late yesterday to disclose the time and location of his supposed “robust public debate.”
If Scott Walker really wanted, as his statement suggests, to “have a conversation with the people of Wisconsin about the best ways to move our state forward” regarding the budget, you’d think he would offer every Wisconsinite the chance to be heard, and not just his select audience.
Call Scott Walker’s office now at 608-266-1212 and demand he open his “Talk with Walker” sessions to the public!
