Contact: Carla Vigue, Office of the Governor, 608-261-2162

MADISON – Governor Doyle today gave the following statement regarding Chrysler’s plan to close its Kenosha plant.

“This plan is contrary to what Chrysler has been telling us all along,” Governor Doyle said. “Now we find out through the news media that they may be shipping Wisconsin’s jobs to Mexico. This is outrageous. Wisconsin workers are willing to invest their hard earned tax dollars to help save Chrysler but it is unfair to ask those same workers to sacrifice their jobs to save a foreign plant making the exact same product.”
