Rep. Chris Taylor’s stealth about F-35 jets

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — State Rep. Chris Taylor is fired up about keeping F-35 fighter jets out of Madison. She’s been grandstanding on the issue for sometime.

The Madison liberal, it seems, is not as eager to have her internal comments to a local F-35 resistance group made public. Instructions from an organizer of the No F-35 Fighter Jets in Madison discussion page suggest the lawmaker wants to skirt the state’s open records laws.

“Remember that her communication is subject to open records law. Please take a look at any thread that you are in the process of replying to and make sure that she is not included. If so please delete her address,” Group member Susan Pastor wrote on Sept. 24. “This is true also of texts and she asks that we limit including her to communication that is absolutely necessary, or we can call. Also, she hopes she can send updates through one person in the future.”

It looks like the lawmaker once praised for her “fierce defense of the state’s open records” law isn’t so fierce when it comes to her communications. Taylor certainly isn’t as fired up about transparency as she is about killing a military project that would deliver a significant economic impact to her city and secure Madison’s Truax Field as an Air National Guard base of operations for years to come.
