One Wisconsin Now Statements on Midwest High Speed Rail Initiative

Walker Promised 250,000 Jobs; Thousands of Jobs in Jeopardy

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements about today’s news regarding the Midwest High Speed Rail Initiative.

“Scott Walker promised Wisconsin he would create 250,00 jobs, but instead he is determined to ship the thousands and thousands of jobs Midwest high speed rail would bring out of Wisconsin. Scott Walker’s version of leadership is putting partisan politics before the job creation, economic development and the needs of Wisconsin’s families. If Wisconsin loses these jobs, there is only person to blame, and that is Scott Walker.”
