Billboard rips Walker for rejecting high-speed rail

Last updated on July 7th, 2019 at 02:59 pm

A new billboard unveiled this week near Milwaukee’s Marquette Interchange says Wisconsin Gov.-elect Scott Walker is "Wanted For Killing 13,000 Wisconsin Jobs."
The billboard by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin takes Walker to task for his willingness to send $810 million in rail funds to states such as California and Illinois.
Last week, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced that, because of Walker’s opposition to high-speed rail, it will divert those funds to other states.
"Scott Walker has killed 13,000 Wisconsin jobs before even taking office," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said. "If you see him, know that he’s armed with empty promises and is capable of killing jobs again."
