"Casey from the Waukesha County Center for Growth. So Tim helping businesses locate and grow in Waukesha County is obviously good for those businesses. But why is it important to communities? We feel very fortunate that we've been able to work with more than 70 companies in the last four years to help them start up to expand to make their initial location, Walk shot County. And those 70 companies collectively have had capital investments of over $200 million. And they've created an excess of 1600 jobs. And when you add in the jobs that were retained, uh, we're at about 2000 jobs that that we've helped companies too. Creator retain here in the county in the last four years. But one of the things that's very important for all of us is the fact that obviously those jobs have a salary that comes with them or an hourly rate, and it provides people's livelihood. At the same time. It's very important for the community is not just to have those those good jobs that help support individuals and families, but also the tax base. I think a lot of your listeners may know That municipalities and counties and for that matter, the state have all been constrained in terms of tax base and tax growth. For the last number of years. We've all been trying to hold the line on expenditures in the public sector. One of the few ways that communities can grow or or even maintain their budget is to have growth in tax base. So when a company builds a new plant or buys a new building and fixes it up that tax base flows too, not just the municipality there in but the school District Technical College, the county And as they as we see tax base growth in our municipality is in the county that provides flexibility and the budgeting so that municipal government and other governments can continue to provide vital services to the citizens. Well, that certainly is important and we talk about this being a community show and the impact and that certainly speaks to that. Um, where do you see the economic and community development efforts going then? In the next few years. I think an interesting distinction. Air if you will is economic development is often measured by tax base and by jobs. You start to talk about community development. You get into the realm of what makes our community special places and again. One of the things were blessed by here and watch our Connie is. We've got 37 municipalities. There's a tremendous variety. You confined the lifestyle you're looking for. But the common denominators are there's good people. There's people who many people who are educated or professionals, and there's hardworking folks. Who care about their home care about their community and invest back into it. And we've got it again. A tremendous variety communities. We've got late country We've got beautiful little towns on the lake. We've got P walkie, you know, with a classic main street and a beach across the street on P Walkie lake. We've got Walker Shaw. We've got a condom walk, which is seeing tremendous investment in the downtown. Everything from high end condos, two additional apartments that are maybe more affordable for for folks who You know, I also want an opportunity to live in that community. The full range of life cycle housing at the county executive talks about and that the alliance and the center for Girls have been working hard on. But when you talk to the planners and the engineers and the architects, you'll hear a term a lot about sense of place. And sense of place just means again. What? What is that Fabric? What is the field in your community area in a downtown P walkie. Are you in the central part of Walker Show Aryan economy walk. Where you've got a nice main street. That's got the coffee shops in the retail in a mom and pop retail, unique things that you're looking for that enhance your quality of life. So I think one of the things we're seeing increasing walk shot Connie and we're trying to help all of our communities in any way we can. Is to develop that sense of place to make sure we've got the farmer's markets. We've got the streetscape. We've got the unique retail. We've got the artisanal foods. We've got the local chefs. We've got the local Cooking schools. We've got the coffee shops that people are looking for. It's just really contributes to that sense of community and makes people feel better about the place. They live because of things that they enjoy and want to do are readily available for him. So we've seen a lot of our work shift as we work with our communities. To concentrate on those downtown areas and make sure that we're doing everything we can to attract those types of businesses and to help the local entrepreneurs, the local chefs, the people who started off with the farmer's markets, to be able to open their shops, opened a restaurant and contribute to that quality of life. So sense of place. Okay, now I'm going to know that what that means if I hear it out there Um, how talking about the different businesses in our community? We understand that there has been some impact due to the cold with 19 crisis. How did Kobe 19 and the resulting shutdowns of many businesses affect the work being done at the alliance and the center for Growth? And how did you respond to that? Well, Jill a cz. We all know it was the most sudden economic downturn and swelling unemployment, really, at least in the last 100 years and in many ways in our nation's history. So from the From the very first day that I became a parent, there was gonna be a widespread shutdown. Suzanne called all of the staff together Alliance and Center for Growth and said, folks I'm going to be a part of the solution. Not part of the problem. Get everything you need out of the office. Get everything on a flash drive you need We're going to start working for home tomorrow on B. Really? Two organizations came even closer together than we've been, Uh, we've share office space. We share staff. We work very well together, but it was time for everybody all hands on deck. We had to learn about a lot of technologies and ways to hold meetings virtually as everybody has had two and everybody covered each other. Who's my tech support on this mean? Who's the Who's the backup person? In case something happens? I would really say that the first day was a little bit of a learning curve. And by the second day again, Alliance Staff Center for Gross staff were working very much parallel in parallel to provide services.

combative committed all of those words do come to do come divided describing your career I mean it's hard what you mentioned that you're not going to go watch silently I can't imagine you ever being silent ready thank you not only were a consistent conservative and maybe a little bit ahead of your time in some of your conservative points of view you chose to make yourself vocal and clear and aggressive as you know there are some members of Congress we call a back benchers they go there and you never hear anything from them again and they cast their votes in the collector paychecks and so on you chose from the beginning. to be heard and that the voice of sense in better would be known and would be out there I talk for just a moment about that and about your own style and the way that you've kind of handle the comported yourself in your life tenure in Congress well after my first election I got a call from former president Ford he said Jim you have a safe district you can either be a great constituents Orvis congressman or hire people who can do that my staff has been great or you can be somebody who actually aggressively pursues and passes legislation that was very good advice and that's what I've done really right from the beginning and I don't regret doing that because the staff can do an awful lot of things that they can their goose registration they can't debated they can't vote on it they can't negotiate with the Senate and with the White House and I I just had my staff pull together some figures following Gerry Ford's advice I've been the lead sponsor coast sponsor of four thousand two hundred ninety nine pieces of legislation seven hundred sixty eight of them passed the house and two hundred seventeen of them have been signed into law by six different presidents so I think I made a difference both for our district in for our country and I've kept in touch hundred town meetings average every year nobody can come close to that in there a lot of people who come into the town meetings and say I've been to direct I've been to route and things like that but I think that this is an issue of accountability and I guess somebody could be wishy washy and six months later when things don't turn out correctly people say why didn't he or she tell us that that's not my style some is not going to pass I think people are newer right away. and they are put their efforts into something else. when I got wind that you wanted to have something to say obviously I didn't think it was you announcing reelection because you pronounce your candidacy for reelection ninety seven thousand times that it was something else one of the questions that will come up is why now are you burned out to get tired of the attitude in Washington did that come into play or is it simply that it's time and you want to go out on your own terms while you can still do it on your own terms well it's you know the thing is is that the framers set up the constitution that required compromise which is kind of a naughty word nowadays and it's been frustrating I'll be the first one to admit that I wanted to go out on my own terms I don't haven't announced opponent free election and nobody can come up and say well I forced him out map because there's nobody that has any credibility at math you know the other thing you know is is that I'd like to get a new representative in the fifth district before redistricting because if I served another term and would be leaving in twenty twenty two I can see the wolves on both sides of the aisle on Madison seeing themselves going to Washington and carving the seat up and believe me I have work to make the wall counties more Republican the wall counties have got to be kept together in redistricting if Republicans are going to have any chance of winning a statewide election yeah I guess we should tell people since she has changed a bit over every ten years you're just like I guess could roughly be described as a small portion of western Milwaukee county the northern half of walk a shot I think all they're virtually all of Jefferson I think you have all the virtually all of Dodge and Washington you no longer have sake I think I think I pretty much yeah you're pretty and the city of whitewater the city of white water ice. get a little bit down there and your white water in that so that's it yet it could change a little bit over the years with the redistricting and so on but it is generally bad. a Republican district and wanted which well you had challengers none that were ever very serious I guess my final question to you is was that liberating and allowing you to. not have to worry at all about. taking positions that were in chores by having a district that was perceived is generally safe do you think do you think that allowed you to become an even more effective and outspoken voice for conservatism it was because I mean I think you you pre date even Tommy Thompson's governorship in here what if you think about the foundational roots of the contemporary Republican Party in Wisconsin I mean your the route I mean it's it's been you and everything's calm well you better route well. very clearly so all the way the old nine district was when I was first elected it didn't start out that way half the courthouse in half the legislative delegation in Waukesha county were Democrats we had a party leadership that complained about conservatives at the bar at the Country Club and the next spring with my support down Taylor was elected Waukesha county chairman and with the party signing up for members and me pointing out folks who have fled from the city that is Republicans that really stand up for your values of small government good schools will crime rates lower taxes and you are a shared your previous voting habits and start voting for Republicans they have a lot of people but led by don Taylor bureau have been able to turn walkie Sean Washington counties into the Republican strongholds of they are and in terms of my political legacy I can look back at that it was a great deal of pride. you you may I I said that was my last question I do have another one you obviously timed the announcement the election is next year the primary election which is where all the action to be on the Republican side is you know a full you're a ways you're giving the other would be candidates an opportunity to go on this it will catch anyone by surprise even though you will Sir about obviously the entirety of the term did you have this in your mind last year when you were writing that the the election that you won back in twenty eighteen was the last is this but thought for a while it or did this come up in the last week what where's where's the time line bad where arms of how you come to this well you know what I what I can say is that Sean Duffy and I were the two most responsible for convincing Paul Ryan to run for speaker and I made a commitment at least mentally that I would serve out and be Paul Ryan's good friend in backstop and he gave me a couple of messages to straighten out which were real masses that you know Paul's retirement was a surprise but no surprise but things have gone along so far down the you know I said that you know really we don't need to have an uproar in the fifth district because it will hurt the statewide take care of well you know heard governor Walker and Attorney General Shamil and you know needed to have the the work that I was doing and the endorsements that I could make the keep the the fifth district legislators reelected. sure enough well it's I'm sure we're going to have you on the program is going to be a lot of things that happen over the next sixty months and I appreciate your joining us to make this time I would say epic and historic announcement this afternoon well thank you very much for giving me the opportunity mark okay thanks

"We're going to try to pass along as much information as we can about. We can't confirm a tactical situation. Swat team has been called. It's in the economy occupied western Waukesha, county very close to either four. I can tell you that there have been some rumors about this, this that. And the other thing. I know what this wasn't. We don't know what it is that we can't confirm what it is. But this is not going on inside of any major facility channel twelve. Is now reporting that there was a high speed chase involving a van and that the vehicle that was the prisons in the vehicle that were running that, that's the focus of this, and they may have left the freeway now in any event. It's a tactical situation with their apparently seeking sub one. It's unclear if there may be a hostage involved in here. Or not. But apparently it started either on the freeway around sixty seven in that area. And that's why they've closed off. I ninety four to just seal off and let anybody get near this in either direction. It also sixty seven both north and southbound near I ninety four the area, the probably the most prominent building in that site is the hospital for those of you who know that I do not have any indication that this is something going on in the hospital, though. And it's in the general vicinity that this operation is going on, and hopefully, just resolved in the person drowsy, you know, gives up it which is how they usually end, but it doesn't always end that way. So stay away from the area, and if you're wondering why you being told to get off the freeway in both directions. Well before that it's because the freeway is closed and have no idea how long it's going to be. It could be some time or hopefully resolve sometime very, very soon. All right, again, if I get any new information move back to that story, obviously. But let's. Move onto another topic you want to talk about a blowhard at a buffoon. We said this, the Paula don't even see there. You are. Well, which which blow harder buffoon. Do you want to talk about that doesn't that doesn't narrow it out? I list a lot. Does it some guidance? Well, this is this blowhard buffoon would be Erin, Perry. The alderman for the city of Waukesha. Now, I reported several days ago that he went on a low rated radio station in Milwaukee, twin ounce with quite drama that I'm not a Republican anymore. I'm joining the Democratic Party because I just can't abide being part of a party that would tolerate Donald Trump. He's at all different from Waukesha, which is not exactly king of the world. They gotta fifteen of over there, but he is somebody who's had political aspirations of past. And there's a reason beyond just Erin Perry. Who's a goof to discuss this story. I have tried to stress on my show over the years, the importance of primary elections, in communities that are dominated by one political party, for example, in Milwaukee county. Let's just say the race for sheriff, the only election that matters is the democratic primary. That's the election. That was recently, one by ernie'll Lucas, who went onto become the sheriff. It was the primary that was won several times by David Clarke, despite attempts to get him out of office, by the liberals, who couldn't stand. The sheriff Clarke was running as a democrat likewise, in Waukesha county in racist for the state legislature, the Republican primary, where we choose our elected officials. We only have a couple of counties around here that tend to go both ways, we're seen as one of them, receiving Kenosha county will both elect Democrats and Republicans, depending restaurant Racine county is very Republican. The city of Racine is very democratic. Same thing with OSHA, but most of our counties tend to be dominated by one party or another. Another example of this would be Washington county, extremely Republicans. So would Washington county elects its elected officials who run in partisan races. It's the primary election and not the general election that matters. That's when you're choosing. The official. Oftentimes. Someone who is not, particularly Republican can get elected in a Republican primary lake wise sheriff Clarke who obviously wasn't very democratic had to run in a democratic primary in order to get elected. And that's stuck in the craw, the Democrats here because they could just never beat Clark. Not all Republicans are created equally. Clearly not all Democrats are created equal Clark had to rod as a democrat. And on the Republican side, there are some very, very strong conservative Republicans, and then there are some rhinos. Erin, Perry, the guy who just announced democrat. You know what he was doing only four and a half years ago. Pulses. He does not know. Well, that's why I'm here to tell you, he was running for the Wisconsin state assembly on a Republican primary, and he was talking like he was the biggest right? Winger on the planet. This guy is there allowed the Republican by they're so extreme. And I opted out of how Paul the is that he can't be part of it. Only four and a half years ago. He was running for a state assembly seat at Waukesha county. It was the seat that was left vacant. When Bill Kramer did not run for reelection. Fortunately, Perry lost. Now they lost you got us Clack cleaned. But had he would this sellout would be a member of the state legislature elected as a Republican wandering over to join the Democrats voting lefty, and all those issues. I'm going to show you what a phony Aaron Perez, we've dug up some of the things that he said when he was running for office, only four and a half years ago. Strong supporter of photo ID for voting strong critic of common core big supporter of Ted. Oh, yeah. I beg supporter of act. Ted major critic of ObamaCare. In other words, doctrinaire, conservative up and down the list. Loses. The election sees that he has no future of Republican politics. Suddenly, he's a democrat. And by the way, we're told is writing a book, what it's like to be a democrat and apart. You know, when the Republicans have gone into wacko, villa, whatever not, we do have the results of the election here. From two thousand fourteen there were six candidates, five candidates that ran in that Republican primary. The winter was Scott Allen, who is still a member of the state assembly. At a pretty good one. He got thirty eight point six percent of the vote or two thousand and four votes finishing a close second was branded roster who got thirty three point one percent or seventeen hundred sixteen votes. Kathleen Cummings who is also an older woman from Waukesha. She ran third seven hundred forty three votes or fourteen point three percent, Vince Travolta. Who's a good conservative. He got four hundred twenty nine votes or eight point three percent. And then in dead last. With five point eight percent of the vote or a measly three hundred votes out of five thousand one hundred ninety two cast was Aaron Perry. Fortunately, what he was running as a Republican the voters in the Waukesha area, saw through this phony and he finished dead last Perry still has delusions of grandeur and probably wants to run for something else, and who knows maybe he'll try to capture that seat is democrat. Maybe that's his mind who knows. But you have to wonder if Perry had actually ran run I rather than last would Eddie of this, come up or is he just seeing Donald Trump is an opportunity for rank opportunism for nobody alderman, for Waukesha to get all sorts of attention. Lot of photos out there in politics and. It's a lot easier for me to have at least some respect for the nincompoop left, who are sincere about it. As opposed to the Foti who simply run around and gravitate over a position to grab a headline when they've got no other way to get ahead of the world. I want to remind you of what other thing in fact, I'm going to do it in the next segment. This is an extremely important point to be made about political strategizing tactics. And it's one of the reasons why the Republicans did not do well in Wisconsin in the twenty thousand election and it actually ties into this goof. Erin, Perry, again, we're keeping crab tabs on this issue in its near the economy, summit area in western Waukesha county, where there is a situation above the swat team tactical units, going on and traffic.

"Executive director of the Waukesha county. Historical museum, so six hundred million dollar impact on the economy. That's number. I'm not going to take credit for our quite all of that. But Wisconsin, Wisconsin. Yeah. We have an incredible museum community, and it really is that a outed myself as a transplant the area, but this statewide community of folks really reached out and made me one of their own very quickly. I'm willing to call myself, a Wisconsin much faster than I thought I would be otherwise are you a badger fan? I might be from Ohio that makes it, but I've lived in five different states. So my loyalties about I will say I've adopted the brewers as my National League team. Okay. That badgers getting they're still working on it. I love Madison, though, they're going to Madison I've been there for for games. It's a fabulous place to be on a game day as a nice museum in their own raps. So Lutely, absolutely. But in terms of of how our organization the the Waukesha county. Historical society museum, our largest impact with actually what we were just talking about our dark period our construction period we were one of. Several historic preservation projects in the state over the past few years supported through the state at work tax credit program as well as federal historic tax credit program, which is an offset to the project cost. It's not immediate. Here's here's a checkbook. But we still had to find private investors found development partner who brought in the investment necessary to the project. So we all said and done. My understanding is we're gonna come in between six and seven million dollars of direct investment into our building that was local area trades working on our building that was in our our part of you know, the the larger contribution that's a huge investment to to a community to have a construction project of that size happened of that kind of dollar amount to happen. And that's what historic organizations in particular context with with the tax credit programs and things were able to advocate for often where the owners of properties as was the case for us with historic courthouse. Complex, and so finding ways to to leverage investment there. In addition to our direct services and programs. I spoke about us as a as an international destination for folks were drivers of people into a new location. I'm the type of person if I'm in a new city or town one of the things my husband, and I do is look up on Google maps and type Newseum and see what's going on. It can be a really good indicator for where's a good place to go for a day trip or I'm traveling through. And I need to kill some hours between the wedding, you know, ceremony and the reception. What can I do? I'll go to the museum often times that means you're going to go get lunch somewhere, you're going to get a drink somewhere. After that. So we really are these anchors for our communities that can help drive folks in and keep them once they're they're that they're going to spend the day with us now. And I think at least for my standpoint, I was not aware of how many historical society museums are in scam sunny. Yeah. All different types, art, museums specific museums as well, as you know, the general museums like the more public museum. But so are these investors how you support or fund the organization primarily then in part -absolutely? So we're an organization that does not have one single source where a self funded and so private philanthropy is probably our largest bucket as it were made up of several hundred annual donors everything from, you know, the thirty dollar annual membership as a support up into some larger figure donations as well. We also right for grants from local and state and federal sources we were really fortunate this past year to be supported through Wisconsin humanities council for our intergenerational heritage fair program. That's a program that allowed us in our first year reopened after renovations. To guarantee we could serve a thousand students coming from throughout the county area. So that was a huge support source was. Getting that grant from humanities council support that program to make sure we could immediately start making our our educational service impact again to those students and they're coming from again throughout the county. We see in our visitation about sixty percent of our school groups and patrons walking in the door coming from the immediate city of Waukesha area. And then after that it's all coming from outside. So we draw a very mixed crowd as well. And you talk about ways that you can you can fund your organization like the the newsletter or the the magazine. Sure. But also for those listeners out there that want to get involved somehow and take a step further volunteering is important. You had mentioned that the workshop Coney struggle society museum, contributed five thousand hours of volunteer time Attlee, so tell us more about how folks can get involved in history and engage with the community, are volunteer.

And as I always so say, we want you to be really connected to your money. And so with that I'm going to reintroduce Casey who Sanski who is the vice president of fun development marketing for Saint Anne center. Randy call with. Waukesha aging and resource center. He is dementia care specialist, and I think that when we were telling stories about my mom and how I remember my grandma, and my grandfather, actually who went into a nursing home. And I remember my dad saying to me and got me specifically, but everybody in the family don't you ever put me there? And and so there's this big fear about leaving houses and one of the conversations that I have with my clients all the time is what is that move. Look like, and you know, if you wanna stay in the house to what what happens if one of you die what happens and who's going to you know, sort through everything, and, but it's a big step to think about moving from your home. And it's a hard step. It's very hard step. And I'm certain that both of you deal with that on a regular basis. True. And the transition is so traumatic for individuals, especially if somebody has dementia, it's very challenging move. And so we try to encourage and promote somebody to stay in their home as long as possible because there are services there's lots of services that can be provided in the home. You know, you've been home health or just regular homecare agencies that can provide that support. So we never encourage somebody to move in that direction of going to some kind of a facility unless a tap Salinas. Azeri? You know, Randy. I sat down with client not too long ago. And she came here behalf of talking to her mom about her finances, and she was so tired, and she said. I've taken all the knobs off the stove. And there's this new. Stove that you can get shuts off. And I mean, she had gone to the whole house to try and accommodate her mom's very early on dementia and yet she was exhausted. Can you talk a little bit about the families, and how families deal with this issue and the fear of a parent getting hurt or fear of apparent walking out of the house and be lost? You see? These silver alerts all the time. Yes. I mean, there's a lot to this. It's not just the dementia. Yeah. This is what I've been thinking about this throughout this interview. We've talked about looking a lot for the signs of furniture with dementia, but also to look for the caregivers. At Saint Anne center. We also always are advocates. I dang in the home as long as possible. That's why we provide day programs all of our that. Go home at night. And we have caregivers come to us that are exhausted. We have seen it time and time again, and it's the whole, you know, you can't take care of others. If you're not taking care of yourself. So at some point, unfortunately, no, those hard decisions do have to be made in the nursing home is the best option. I think of my own grandfather. Where almost our entire family was like, grandma he's got to go to a nursing home. And he was just beyond the level of care that our family could give him, and he he had dementia, and it was progressing very quickly. So like, I say look for the caregivers, and this kind of goes back to what you were saying earlier about that mindset of you know, we're in silos, I gotta do this on my own. I can take care of this. But no reach out. You know, that's what San an center is for. That's what the aging and disability resource center is for there are supports if you don't have that big family support. But you've got to take care of yourself. I I think there's statistics out there that caregivers get sick very frequently. And then you can't care. Give correct. You can't be a good caregiver. If you're not taking care of yourself know. And that's the main thing I like, the fact that that case he mentioned that you have to know your limitations as a caregiver when is that time where you can no longer be safe in doing what you are. You know, if there's a lot of lifts transfers are things that you're doing for the personally metric caring for and it puts you in possible, safety or. Jeopardy that that's that time to recognize. Okay. This I do need to look at something more. I need to look at what the next step is because. Yeah. As much as we want to do everything, we physically even emotionally might not be able to. I spoke to one of my clients who spouses got is has dementia, and I noticed the difference with him when I saw him and talked on the phone. He's talking very quickly. And he said Karen, it's so hard because she asked me the same question all the time all the time all the time, and I try to tune it out. But very often, you know, she'll say she looks at me like I should have an answer. And so it's not like I can pretend that the question is there. It's the same thing over and over. And that also must be very hard on the caregiver. Gary really challenging to have a lot of patience. And unfortunately with when dealing with people. There is no one size fits all solution. Unfortunately, no Randy can't sit here and say, well, you do step one step two these are people. So they all you know, there are some techniques and tricks, but it's really just learning how to deal with that loved one. We certainly I could tell you different stories from our that our clients have told me a thousand times. So it's kind of just knowing how to redirect the conversation. But yeah, that's why we say caregivers have to take care of themselves. Because you can't let yourself get pushed beyond that line where you're like, I just can't take this anymore. That's why you need your brakes places like San Antonio. We offer a respite centre so for up to twenty days. You can bring your loved one there. And then you can go take care of yourself go on a business trip. So, but I think having those breaks are so important because. Yeah, you you're gonna get asked the same questions over and over again, that's for sure and you have that. Worry of you know, is mom or is my wife gonna get up and leave in the middle of the night. You know, especially when those fears really started to become more common. That's when you really really need to reach out for help. What are the hurdles that families go through with dealing with people with memory loss? Yeah. What happens is that we live in such a a logical world and dementia is not that way. At all. It's the furthest thing we talk about if you try to use logic and reason with somebody with dementia. You're not gonna get very far to we call it entering into dementia world because you really do you have to go into that world understand sold. Like, for example, thinking about that question that they've asked for the fifteenth time to them. That's the first time they've asked that question. And so even though you've heard it fifteen times for them. It's the first time. So it really is working around that in making sure that we enter into that creative world that dementia is and. And the frustration. The question of watching that person that you care so much about disappear. Yeah. That loss where you can see that you are potentially losing that person. They're they're they're still there. But the disease covers up, you know, who they truly can be on the outside. Some we talk about these women that I've seen when I go to. Visit my mom holding the little dog or holding the puppy, the feelings are there, and the feelings of need of touching and connection are vital. And yet so often the disease scares people, and you have almost a line of separation. Yeah. You we have that core value that doesn't ever go away.

"waukesha" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"We had a flat tire and Waukesha county. Guess what they're suing they've been so traumatized by the terrible police treatment that they receive because they are convinced that they are victims of racial. Profiling that's reflect refresh everyone's memories the incident occurred last August. The two men involved, Dimitrius Williams, and John Patterson Milwaukee. Pastors? There were headed back from a fishing trip. They had a flat tire near Morland road. They pull over to the side of the road. Up comes a Waukesha county sheriff's deputies with the red and white flashes on according to the two pastors initially we were elated. Hey somebody's coming over to help us. Quoting from the story of the Waukesha Freeman initially were happy to see that help it arrived. However, it was our initial impression of assumed assistance that quickly changed according to the lawsuit. Deputy Eric Michelson who was the field. Supervisor of deputy, Michael Powell. Michaelson asked the man if they had any drugs alcohol or weapons in their vehicle instead of offering assistance, both better also asked for the driver's license, although they say that no moving violation occurred. They also allege that the boat that they were towing for their fishing trip. Had an orange sticker often marking abandoned vehicles play started, even as they told the deputy that help was on the way to change the flat tire. Williams says that all of this was discriminatory. The two pastors claim according to the story in the freemen that they sustain damage, including emotional pain, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life because of this incident. Gebbie break. First of all, we need a term to come up with people that are stealing the victimization of others. We've got stolen valor for those who claim that they were in the military did all these things that they in fact did not do. When you consider the people that have truly been discriminated against because of their skin color. There is the city of their religion for these two clowns to compare what happened to them to that kind of situation is ridiculous. First of all. I don't think anything is unusual about when you see in a vehicle pulled off to the side of the road to come up and ask the person for their driver's license. I would assume they asked me for my driver's license. Second they asked if there was anything inappropriate in the vehicle caps always ask that. Because a we do a lot of drug interdiction and the people give their permission. You don't need a search warrant in order to look inside the vehicle so what? And Thirdly, they put the orange sticker on the side of the boat. They probably do that every single time. There's a vehicle sitting off to the side of the road. So that it can be barked. What did you go? I'm glad Waukesha county sheriff's deputies and they see vehicles on the side of the road, or at least looking into seeing whether or not, hey is this legitimate or not. We just came off the situation involving the finding of Jamie close. When law enforcement officers come across individuals that are in a situation like this. We want them to have their radar up, and they're up to make sure that nothing is amiss. But beyond that what you'll notice in. This story is that there is no allegation of any racially. Inappropriate comments made. There's no sterling Brown situation where someone got taste. There's those smart alecky comments coming from the officer. They came upon a vehicle on the side of the road and said, hey, do you have anything bad in here? Show us your driver's license. See they put an orange sticker on the car for this. They're traumatized. I've had bigger attitude thrown at me when I pulled over for speeding to presume that every time a cop asks you a question is because of your skin color. Is a way of taking racism that exists in our society and stealing it to make yourself. A victim. In this case with the apparent purpose of cashing, Ed. Give me money every time a cop asked me for my driver's license. And I'm willing to bet suppose I'm out of state, or you know, six counties away, they pulled me over to the side of the I'm willing to bet they'll ask me whether or not to have anything appropriate of the vehicle, especially if I'm pulled over to the side. Do you know how many of these cards pulled over to the side of the road? Do in fact have drugs, do you know, how much interdiction we're doing and Racine county with all the people that are pulled over there? We should want them to ask once they size the situation up. They figured out that everything was fine. And we moved died. No, what was victimized here. Nobody needs to file a lawsuit other than people that are trying to take a flat tire and turn it into a money maker for them by falsely accusing some hardworking sheriff's deputies of racism. What you want them to do next? I just drive on by when you're off to the side of the road. If we had anything in our car. You said you're dead. The end of it all by goodness gracious. What a horrible society we live in that you had to put up with that incredible abuse they pointed orange sticker on your boat. No. Pointed sticker on their boat. It's right up there with being put on a chain gang. All right, five forty four news talk eleven thirty w S.
"waukesha" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"The last Friday of. The great year that was two thousand eighteen. Right now as we entered the final hour of the show. We normally do in this last outer our the Friday forum where we have two different guests from two different walks of life. And then we go through the days and weeks events. But today we're going to switch it up a little bit. I'm really honored and grateful to have with us in studio. Waukesha county executive appall fair. Also good friend the good morning. Thank you for being here. We're going to just run through a bunch of fun topics today. We're gonna talk about the news the the topics of the day, and then we're going to give out some awards later in the eleven thirty portion of the hour, but. Late last month. You were on the show, and you made an announcement. And I kind of buried the lead when I kinda I kinda gave it away. Tell us what you're up to county executive for walkers boxer county. Well, as you were talking about earlier in it's great to see you again, Tracy. It's great to be down here. I would be remiss if I didn't say to John Mercure mom says hi because usually when you're talking to him and data very important to get out of the way. Yes. But when you look at it. Yeah. About a month ago? I announced that I'm going to be running for re election as county executive workshop county. In fact, we're going over later today got the signature sheets. We're going to put that information in and get ready to roll we've had a good for your run. I think we've done some great things, and I'm looking forward to get out and talking to the people in Waukesha county and asking them for their support for four more years. So you spent some time at the state as an elected official, and then went to a win over to to the county side. How is that transition ban? And how does that past experience really helped fuel and inform? What you do for a Waukesha county. Well, it is. It's it's great. When you look at it one of the things in for most people to know, my mom was in politics for a long time. She always told me that if you wanna make change you want to get as close to the area that you want affect it has county executive the biggest thing that we I was looking at was economic development. How can we change the atmosphere in Waukesha to really propel growth, and I think we're. Seeing that I think is happening. The last couple of years the workshop county center for growth is our new economic development organization has been a wonderful addition and has really helped those mid-size businesses, which we have a lot of and watch sharp county. In fact, almost ninety two percent of our companies are small business fewer than a hundred employees the center for growth is giving them the opportunity take it to the next level. And that's what's been exciting for me to know, how the state works in how different things are going on at the state level. And how impact the county? I think he's been a wonderful bridge for me to go back to my fellow legislators and talk to them and say, hey, this is how it impacts us. This is the ripple effect that we're looking at or this is what we could do differently. If you gave us the right tools, and really how those investments can be really extrapolated next founded on to make that greater benefits. So so wanted to talk a little bit more about those small businesses that you mentioned in Waukesha county, the state chamber of commerce late last week. The w MC. Wisconsin manufacturers and commerce does an annual survey of its members. And it suggested the survey suggested that many of the members across the state of Wisconsin, presumably, many of those in Waukesha county are optimistic about the future of the state. In fact, eighty four percent of the executive survey believe that the Wisconsin economy is strong or very strong, and someone argue as strong as ever do you see that continuing especially as you think about your constituents. I think so when you look at where we are in the neat thing. I think about the mid west, especially as we're kind of. Insulated from what happens on the coast, the coast through some major fluctuations back and forth on our side. We're pretty consistent. I talk about it as a gift the good German ethics that we have here. We work hard. We play hard. But at the same time, we not look forward to the future. And that's what I think you'd see a lot of the businesses. We hear stories that Milwaukee or the region. In the top ten when it comes to new company growth. But when you look at companies that have been able to survive the three to five years, which is important we're off the charts. And I think that's one of the things that you're gonna continue to see throughout this timeframe in the next couple of years workforce is still going to be very important, and we're working on some ideas and areas around that I think there's some neat things that are going on within this region that are held going to be helping that, but we'll continue to give people the right atmosphere the right climate. So they can continue to the grill of businesses. So what are you hearing about tariffs? I know the state survey suggested that tariffs are of concern, but they're not necessarily impacting people's confidence in the way. They're doing business. Yeah. I think the tariffs or a twofold attack that's going on right now when you look at the steel in the aluminum tariffs, those are having a big impact, especially when you look at our manufacturing people. Some of the other areas, though are important pretty good shape. The opportunity was appointed to one of the US trade representative's intergovernmental of fears policy advisory committee, four tariffs. And so I've been reading a lot of the tariffs. When you look at some of the agriculture oil in the US MCA trade tariffs it came out. There's some really good things that are in there for us. There's still some things that we need to work. And I think one of the biggest areas that you hear like a talked about before was the steel and aluminum, we've gotta get that solution done. We've gotta give some people stability in what they're looking at. That is probably the biggest impact that we're seeing right now. So the economy and the abundance of jobs or the concern about jobs may or may not be the leading factor going forward is how we resolve this issue of tariff in in in the cost of materials county executive county executive Paul fair when we come back. We're going to dive into those those issues the issues of the day the issues of the week. I want to get your thoughts and comments on the new administration. For the state of Wisconsin. And then some of these the recent polls, I always love talking about polls and getting other people's reaction are the most admired, man and woman in America. And what's your take on that? When we come back after the break, it's Tracy Johnson on WTMJ. It's eleven sixteen. Good Friday morning. It's eleven nineteen on WTMJ Turkey Johnson filling in for Cps graffiti,.
