MADISON, WI – State Representative David Crowley (D-Milwaukee), Chair of the Milwaukee Delegation, sent the following letter to Governor Scott Walker demanding a response to Sheriff Clarke removal.
Dear Governor Walker,
On January 23, 2017 you received a letter that I authored, calling on you to remove Sheriff David Clarke from office. It has been 35 days since this request and I have yet to have received a response.
Mr. Governor, the fact that in over a months’ time you have not responded to the request of a State Representative greatly concerns me. If you are not willing to take the time to respond to a fellow elected official, how can you possibly be responsive to the people of Wisconsin? I know personally that the constituents that I represent are waiting for an answer in regards to the removal of Sheriff Clarke. This is not a partisan issue. The people that I represent and the people of Milwaukee County deserve a timely written response.
The lack of this response is completely unacceptable. The people of the 17th Assembly District deserve better and so do the people of Wisconsin. I look forward to a timely written response.
David C. Crowley
State Assembly Representative
17th Assembly District
