[Madison, Wis.] – Millionaire Mary Burke was on the wrong side of taxpayers again this past weekend, criticizing Governor Walker’s $100 million property tax cut that passed in bipartisan fashion, at the same time she is running from her tax-and-spend record.
In the decade prior to Governor Walker taking office, property taxes skyrocketed by 27%. Now, property taxes have dropped three years in a row. In fact, the average homeowner will now save $680 over four years under Walker when compared to the trend set by Mary Burke and the failed Doyle Administration. The property tax cut comes in the same year where Governor Walker signed a budget into law that included nearly one billion dollars in overall tax relief for Wisconsin.
“Millionaire Mary Burke has a long record of raising the tax burden on middle-class families,” said Joe Fadness, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. ”As a member of the Madison School Board she voted to increase taxes by the maximum amount allowed by law last year, and as a member of the Doyle Administration she helped architect policies that negatively impacted Wisconsin families and put our state in a downward spiral. Wisconsin can’t afford Mary Burke.”
