Scott Walker's pet project, WEDC, has been a miserable failure in terms of job creation and a taxpayers money pit. While there is too much incompetence to list at this time, there is one thing that really stands out!
The Incompetence of Ryan Murray.
Even though we at CogDis have been pointing out that Ryan Murray is beyond incompetent. It was not Murray's bang up job responding to "citizens policy questions" as much as it was that Ryan's daddy - Mike Murray of RJS Construction.
When you run a business as successful as RJS Construction, you can not have incompetent boobs like Murray working in the office. So you call in favors and get him in charge of tens of millions of tax payer dollars. He can see the world, make a good living and not affect your family's bottom line.
On the other hand, Ryan Murray, as a child of privilege who never had to work for anything in his life, yet was handed everything. Murray, who couldn't cut it going away to college, has always needed daddy to bail him out. Murray, has bounced from one right wing campaign to another until Scott Walker handed him power. Now the power that the Governor has given him has went to his head and it is not pretty.
Lee Swindall, WEDC's vice president of business and industry development,recently quit because he could not stand Murray. He was eventually talked into staying, but before that he sent this letter!
"As a leader of the organization and its mission, I can no longer align with the management methods employed in policy development or deployment. I believe Ryan Murray, lacking either the talent or experience to function as the Chief Operations Officer of the WEDC, is causing deep and lasting harm through the application of control-style management rather than consultative management.
"Murray confuses rigid control with stability and sound management. What he is producing instead is instability, opposition and resentment in WEDC. This state of growing unrest will corrode the ability of the agency to perform and reach goals, not secure it. Ryan Murray is too committed to his own consolidated power to either notice or care about the swelling discontent in WEDC."
The letter came after one clash after another in which Murray reprimanded Swindall for what he saw as chronic flouting of agency procedures and rules — at a time when Murray was tasked with running a tighter ship.
Murray, called out as incompetent by a peer, is now in charge of tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer money. No wonder Scott Walker can not create jobs.
This is what you get when Scott Walker is in charge. Walker cares more about rewarding donors than actually governing and his appointments and actions prove it.
We do not need four more years of incompetence and cronyism. Let's make Ryan Murray try and get a real job,disband WEDC and vote Scott Walker out of office in November
Our tax dollars and our jobs depend on it!
