Second Radio Ad Buy from the RSLC Highlights Schachtner’s Raw Deal for Taxpayers
WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 12th, 2018) — Beginning today, the Republican State Leadership Committee is airing a second issue ad which highlights liberal Patty Schachtner’s reckless use of taxpayer dollars.
As a member of the Somerset Board of Education, Schachtner supported a more than $4 million property tax increase on her neighbors. She has also criticized the testing of able-bodied welfare recipients for drug use, which helps protect tax dollars. Furthermore, as Chief Medical Examiner for St. Croix County, salaries for Schachtner’s office more than doubled in just five years.
“Patty Schachtner’s public stewardship of working families’ hard-earned tax dollars is appalling,” RSLC President Matt Walter said. “From sticking it to her own neighbors by supporting a more than $4 million property tax increase, to opposing the drug-testing of able-bodied welfare recipients, to the amount spent on salaries in her office doubling as medical examiner, Patty Schachtner fails as a responsible guardian of taxpayer dollars,” Walter added.
The audio link and script of the new RSLC ad that begins today is below:
Script of Ad — “Wrong Answers”
“Patty Schachtner has all the wrong answers for taxpayers.”
“Lemme give you some examples:”
“When she was on a school board, Patty Schachtner supported a property tax hike that would’ve cost taxpayers more than four million dollars!”
“Schachtner’s answer for taxpayers was just wrong.”
“Patty Schachtner is failing to protect taxpayers by criticizing drug screening for able-bodied welfare recipients. The testing protects tax dollars, and it can also help people with drug addiction stay on the right path to getting and keeping a job. That’s commonsense accountability… but Schachtner opposes it.”
“Once again, Patty Schachtner is just plain wrong.”
“And since Schachtner was put in charge of our local Medical Examiner office, their taxpayer-funded salaries more than doubled in just five years.”
“It’s clear, Patty Schachtner has all the wrong answers for taxpayers… and with her big tax agenda we all lose.”
“Paid for by Republican State Leadership Committee.”
