Portrait of the Gate Keepers to Lodi City Hall!

Portrait of the Gate Keepers to Lodi City Hall!

Since Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s embarrassing and one million dollars in the red  ill-fated run for the President of the USA last Fall he has been holding “listening sessions” across the State. Those meetings came to roost in our little hamlet of Lodi yesterday. But here’s the problem…….These listening sessions are “invitation only”. No problem if the “invitation only’ sessions are held on private property. But yesterday one these sessions was held at Lodi City Hall that denied citizens access to a public building. These citizens were turned away at the entrance to Lodi City Hall if they were not invited to meet with the unpopular Governor Walker. (polls show Walker’s approval rating hovering at less then 38%)

I’m calling him out as the coward he truly is…What are you afraid of Mr.Walker?….Tough questions like the journalists in Great Britain  asked you last summer that exposed your incredibly weak policies, ideas and ignorance. Denying access to a public facility on the basis of political party allegiance is an insult of the highest order to the writers of the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment. I believe its time to figuratively tar and feather the “Gate Keepers of The City Hall of Lodi Wisconsin”
