Conservation voters spotlight Walker’s drinking water failures in new TV ad

MADISON – Wisconsin Conservation Voters IEC launched a TV ad today spotlighting Scott Walker’s failure to protect drinking water in Wisconsin.

“From lead in water systems across the state to manure running from faucets because of contaminated wells, Walker has failed to protect drinking water and the health of Wisconsin families,” Program Director Matt Dannenberg said.

The TV ad began airing on cable and network stations today. It will run until Nov. 5. It represents a $250,000 investment by Wisconsin Conservation Voters IEC.
