What is Tom Barrett's Plan for Wisconsin?


Why won’t Tom Barrett tell us what his plans are for Wisconsin?

Our state is at a crossroads and we deserve to know what our elected officials will do if we choose to put them in office. Governor Scott Walker has made his positions quite clear. The State Budget passed last year controlled spending, eliminated the deficit and reduced property taxes. It is clear what we can expect from Walker in the future.

On the other hand, Barrett has refused to address what he would do to deal with the state’s budget challenges. The Co-chairs of the powerful Joint Finance Committee wrote a letter to Barrett this week asking him for his plan to address the state budget. 

His response was to call the letter a ‘stunt.’

Why is it a stunt for a candidate to make their policies clear to the voters? Either he has no plan or he is refusing to tell us what it is.

AFP-Wisconsin is calling on Barrett to publicly announce his budget positions and tell us what he would have done to address the $3.6 billion deficit in 2011 and what he will do in the next budget cycle.

Please call Mayor Barrett at 414-286-2200 and ask him what his plan is for the state budget.

We deserve to know!
