In a Time of Crisis

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on July 6, 2009

I am sure that everyone has heard about the horrible fire at the Patrick Cudahy plant that has been burning for more than 24 hours now.

The fire crews from several surrounding communities should be commended for the valiant efforts to fight the blaze, as should Cudahy Mayor Ryan McCue, who showed good leadership in a time of crisis. He was willing to make the hard decisions in the effort to protect the public safety as much as he was able to.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

It should be also noted that County Board Chairman Lee Holloway and County Supervisor Pat Jursik were quick to pledge County resources to aid in the emergency. The Department of Aging did a lot to help area seniors safely evacuate and made sure that they will be safe until they can return home.

But I have one question: Where was Scott Walker? One would think that a man who claims to be the best person to run the state would be at least doing something during a crisis in his own county, and so close to the airport.
