Scott Walker Calls Mother of Tony Robinson Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Mar 12, 2015, 02:17 am

Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, has been demonized by Democrat Party labor union thugs in Wisconsin, but Mr. Michael Johnson, CEO of Boys and Girls Club of Dane County, insists that Walker has shown sincerity to connect with the African-American community in the Badger State.

WKOW 27 reports that, "Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) met with African-American community leaders from Madison Wednesday and spoke with the mother of Tony Robinson, the unarmed 19 year-old man who was shot and killed by a Madison police officer last Friday night. Boys and Girls Club of Dane County CEO Michael Johnson reached out to Gov. Walker on Monday asking for a meeting. He wanted to not only discuss what happened to Tony Robinson, but about helping Wisconsin's African-American population going forward."

Mr. Johnson is quoted as saying that, "I felt like he was sincere.  He wanted to follow-up. I think he listened."

According to WKOW, "Johnson said he made a point to ask Gov. Walker if he would call Andrea Irwin, the mother of Tony Robinson.  The Governor immediately asked if he could get her number and call her right away," 

Gov. Walker is leading in opinion polls in seeking the GOP nomination for President in 2016.
