Statements about Transportation

Milwaukee lost the headquarters for MillerCoors because the area lacks good transit.

Mitchell International Airport is the "the third busiest airport in the world and the number one busiest in the country."

"I never proposed privatizing the (Milwaukee County) airport."

The Milwaukee business community "did not speak about the facts" -- and in support of train manufacturer Talgo -- as the Milwaukee-Madison rail link was being killed.

Governor-elect Scott Walker’s opposition to high-speed rail "killed 13,000 Wisconsin jobs"

If the state turns down money for high-speed rail, it will "kill nearly 10,000 permanent Wisconsin jobs."

"Our county now has the fastest growing airport in America, attracting nearly 1,000 new private sector jobs."

Scott Walker supported the same transportation bill he’s attacking me for. He said at the time it would save the taxpayers money.
