Scott Walker to Hold Brown Bag Rally TODAY to Call on Obama, Barrett, and Doyle to Stop the Train Boondoggle

Wauwatosa – Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor announced today he will be holding a Brown Bag rally with grassroots supporters on Monday, August 16th at 2:30pm in front of the Hoan Bridge.  The Brown Bag Rally will allow supporters from acrossWisconsin to send a message to President Obama, Mayor Barrett, and Gov. Doyle that the people of Wisconsin do not want the $810 million high speed train from Milwaukee to Madison, and instead, want the money to be used to fix our state’s crumbling roads and bridges.

“Tom Barrett is President Obama’s handpicked successor to continue the devastating policies of Jim Doyle, and they are all three in lock step in promoting the $810 million high speed boondoggle train,” said Walker.  “The people of Wisconsin hope the president’s visit will prompt a change of heart about how their hard earned money should be spent.  If I’m elected governor, I will stop this train and continue to advocate this money be spent on roads and bridges instead.”



Supporters and the public are encouraged to join Walker at the rally.  Details are below.
