Scott Walker’s made it clear that if he’s elected governor, he’ll work hard to gut state government (after all, Walker never met a government employee he didn’t loathe), and Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union has a little something to say about the thought of Walker as governor (emphasis mine):
“His prescription for Milwaukee County has been to wreck services so badly that the state has had to step in repeatedly just to make sure vital functions don’t collapse completely,” Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, said in a statement. “Who can we call on to save us when he starts destroying the entire state?”
Beil raises a good point. Given how we’ve seen services provided by Milwaukee County get taken over by the state because of Walker’s mismanagement, who’ll take over state services when Walker screws them up if he’s elected governor?
