The November 4th, 2014, Wisconsin Election

Election Nears

In preparing to be a voter on November, 4, 2014, I decided to search the available information on the candidates for governor.  The results are surprising.    The two candidates are incumbent, Governor Scott Walker and Mary Burke.  Here is what my research revealed:

Mary Burke

1.  Graduated from Harvard Business School in 1985.

2.  Worked for Intrepid Corporation between 1986 and 1989 as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer ( a holding company owned by her father)

3.  She filed Wisconsin tax returns for 1987 (1986 income) and 1989 (1988      income).  No tax return available for 1988.  May have filed in the     State of New York but is not collaborated.

4.  1988 through 1990, started a company in New York , Manhatten     Intelligence, which failed.

5.  Began working for Trek Bicycle Corporation (her father’s business) in 1990 as Director of     European Operations and claims European sales increased $47 million but this is not verified.   No evidence of her success at Trek has been collaborated because Trek is a private company and refuses to verify.

6.  Paid no Wisconsin Income Taxes in 1992 and 1993 receiving the     classification as a citizen living in a foreign country most of the year.

7.   In mid-1993 she went snow boarding in Argentina and later confessed to     Governor Doyle, she had burn out from her Trek position.

8.  Served as Secretary of Commerce of the state Department of Commerce under Jim Doyle from 2005 to 2007.  Search for achievements yielded nothing.

9.  She has not run a county, lacks experience here.

10.  Recently won an election to serve on Madison, Wisconsin School Board.
