Madison – After rioters attacked State Senator Tim Carpenter and tore down two historic and iconic statues, State Senator Alberta Darling issued the following statement in response:
“The violence and destruction that took place last night in Madison are unacceptable. I am praying for a speedy recovery for my colleague Senator Tim Carpenter.
Time and time again our Governor has been slow to act, and the failed leadership from the east wing continues to become more and more transparent. The Governor needs to step up and lead. He needs to use the resources available to him to make sure every citizen feels safe. Events like last night around the Capitol cannot be tolerated anywhere in our state.”
Senator Darling represents portions of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties.
