Governor Walker released the following statement remembering Dr. King:
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a brave man who had the courage to follow his convictions in the face of great adversity. Today, we celebrate a man who inspired a nation and led the charge for freedom, equality, and justice. His example continues to resonate and influence, and his legacy will not be forgotten.
Governor Scott Walker attended two events today celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his contributions to the Civil Rights movement. The first event of the day was the 17th annual breakfast hosted by the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee, followed by the 34th annual tribute in the State Capitol Rotunda.
