Scott Walker issued a press release today announcing November was the busiest month on record at Mitchell International Airport, owned by Milwaukee County.
In 2008 as part of an ongoing campaign to dismantle government (while simultaneously running for governor), Walker proposed the privatization of Mitchell.
Politicians issue press releases to attack rivals or brag about accomplishments, Walker is clearly bragging about the high traffic at Mitchell International last month.
AirTran announced today it will establish a hub in Milwaukee, creating 100 jobs. Walker has press release praise for that announcement as well. Add AirTran’s addition to the 800 jobs Republic Airways will create by moving operations to Milwaukee and the future looks good for Mitchell International.
What a difference a year makes. I can’t wait to see what capper makes of this.
