#WalkerAt20: Failure to Respect Diversity

Remembering 20 Years of Walker Failure

MADISON, Wis. — In his twenty years in office, Scott Walker has amassed a truly astounding record of failure. To commemorate the looming anniversary of his first election to office, One Wisconsin Now is highlighting a different and depressing failure of Gov. Walker every day, for twenty days. The title “Governor of the State of Wisconsin” suggests that the holder of the office would consider the diversity of the entire state’s population. As judged by his actions in office, Scott Walker has clearly failed in this regard.

“With the title of ‘Governor of Wisconsin’ you’d think Scott Walker would show at least some commitment to representing the diversity of Wisconsin’s 5.5 million residents. But Gov. Walker has shown by his actions that if you’re not rich, white and straight, he doesn’t have time for you,” said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director.

Among Gov. Walker’s failures to respect and represent the increasing diversity of Wisconsin’s population are his actions:

One Wisconsin Now is commemorating over 20 days, the failings, scandals and imbroglios of Gov. Scott Walker’s 20-years in elected office. Gov. Walker, who was first elected to the State Assembly on June 29, 1993, has spent virtually no time in the private sector and has enjoyed nearly half his life on the taxpayers’ dime, including receiving well over $1 million in salary alone, as well as health care benefits for he and his family.
