Scott Walker Lacks the Vision Needed to Lead Milwaukee County

Light Rail, Politicians & Politics

Following is an invitation I received (along with a whole lot of other folks) for a fun raiser for Scott Walker, and a copy of my response to the invitation.

 Dear Perfecto

 
I wholeheartedly agree with you that Milwaukee is important to Southeastern Wisconsin --- and actually Wisconsin as a whole.
 
Unfortunately Scott Walker seems more interested in courting the favor of the collar county Republicans (possible run for governor or senator ?) , than in working to make Milwaukee into a true World Class City - County - and Region.
 
Our economic zones are no longer distinct -- Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Fox Cities -- etc, are all dependent upon each other ---  and in fact we are part of an economic zone that is interstate and includes Chicago.
 
The lack of vision to nurture Milwaukee County in conjunction with the City of Milwaukee and the Collar Counties -- and yes Chicago,  via "rail" for an example,  stymies the growth and economies of cooperation that are sorely needed.
 
We need a leader with the foresight to work in building our transportation systems, including all aspects of road, bus, rail and air -- and to rejuvenate the Inner City which has suffered disproportionately from White Flight,  the continued deterioration of the school system, and the lack of jobs within the community or the ability to viably access those that are in the collar counties.
 
Unfortunately, Scott Walker is not that person of vision.  Under his leadership, we have not only not moved forward --- but we have lost ground with some of our greatest treasures, such as the once vaunted Park System.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dave Tatarowicz
