Walker Outsources Milwaukee County Cleaning Contract to Ohio? Which State is He Running in Again?
The contract for recently privatized cleaning operations within several Milwaukee County departments has been awarded to “Mid-American Cleaning Contractors” by County Executive Scott Walker.
“Mid-American Cleaning Contractors” is based in Columbus Ohio, not in Milwaukee County or Wisconsin for that matter. If this sounds familiar, it is. Last summer, Walker caught some heat from local businesses for outsourcing his campaign website to… you guessed it, Ohio!
Never mind all the talk about creating jobs in Wisconsin, which is one of his primary campaign talking points. Twice now Walker has chosen to give work to companies outside Wisconsin instead of awarding the privatized contracts to local companies in Milwaukee and Wisconsin. He may be creating jobs, but they’re in the wrong state.
It’s unfortunate that instead of keeping our tax dollars here in Wisconsin, the County Exec is using the opportunity to help the economy of Ohio instead of the State he’s running for Governor of.
