Harming Our Business Climate From LaX to LA
December 14, 2010 2:43 PM
Earlier today I shared a stinging editorial from the La Crosse Tribune on Governor Elect Scott Walker's decision to send $810 million of our tax money and 5,000 jobs to other states. Council President Mark Clear also forwarded an editorial that appeared in the Los Angeles Times this weekend. You can read it here: http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/editorials/la-ed-trains-20101211,0,7552797.story.
The Times edit confirms what I feared. Walker's decision is reverberating all over the country, and Wisconsin is being viewed as a state that doesn't understand the new national economy. Walker is damaging Wisconsin's economic development position nationally before even taking office.
