Dear Scott Walker, You forgot to mention this part of "OUR LEGACY". Best, Retiring Guy

Especially now that he plans to chair Trump's Wisconsin re-election campaign!

Headline from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 1/11/2019)

It got worse during Walker's last two years in office.  
The $50.6 million spent on overtime last year at adult prisons is 17 percent higher than the $43.1 million spent in 2016, according to a Department of Corrections report to the Legislature's budget committee.
Starting wages for officers will increase from $16 an hour to $16.65 an hour this month — a 9.5 percent increase since 2016.  [Annual salary range:  $33,280-34,632]
