OWN Statements on Justice Ziegler’s Participation in Menasha Corp. Case

Share

MILWAUKEE — Scot Ross, Executive Director of One Wisconsin Now, issued the following statements regarding the state Supreme Court’s decision in the Menasha Corp. case and Justice Ziegler’s written opinion.

“Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce’s $2 million investment in Annette Ziegler has turned around a quick $265 million return for business – an extraordinary deal given today’s economy. One Wisconsin Now called on Annette Ziegler to recuse herself from this case because of this clear conflict of interest. Her deciding vote and decision in this case will mean more cuts to services or higher taxes for the people of Wisconsin and all to give more tax cuts for businesses.”
