Chippewa Falls (WQOW)- Governor Scott Walker was in Chippewa Falls Wednesday to attend the 50th anniversary celebration for Chippewa River Industries.

CRI is a private, non-profit company providing subcontract packaging and assembly services.

The company also provides job training and placement for individuals with disabilities.

While Walker was in Chippewa Falls, News 18 asked him about  when he used taxpayer money to fly from Appleton to Green Bay.

Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes documented the same 24 mile trip on Facebook Live from their car Tuesday.

Here’s what Walker had to say.

“I think the biggest problem for tax payers money is going to be when Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes take the state backward,” Walker said. “They want to raise property taxes, raise income taxes, raise the gas tax by as much as a dollar a gallon.”

Walker said that would cost the average family about $1,200 a year, but he never commented about his trip by plane.
