Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barret Speaks Out to Wisconsin Voters in Superior
More than 120 people listened as Mayor Barrett spoke at Shamrock Pizza in Superior on Saturday afternoon.
Barrett's speech consisted of creating jobs and the recently released job numbers for the state of Wisconsin, but he says, more importantly his gratitude to the grass root efforts of Douglas County.
"Because this is important to us," Mayor Barret said. "We want the people in the north to know that I want to be the Governor of this entire state. So, Superior is very important. Douglas County is very important to me."
Both running parites say they want to push Wisconsin forward.
Governor Walker said he has already started doing that in his term in office, helping the state gain a budget surplus instead of a deficit.
He is says he is also proud of his work creating jobs.
Most importantly, more than 30,000 jobs have been created since I have taken office," Gov. Walker said.
Barrett however disagrees with Walker and says there is no budget surplus.
"The Fiscal Bureau said that actually the state was in a deficit situation," he said. "Governor Walker said, lets borrow some money. So he took some debt that was going to come through this year. He refinanced it. In essence he put it on the credit card for future generations."
