Madison has been in an ongoing public debate about the possible siting of F-35 fighter jets at Truax Field. For today’s F-35 update episode, we speak with Representative Chris Taylor and Amelia Royko-Maurer, both of whom were part of a delegation of Madison-area community leaders and elected officials who traveled to Burlington, Vermont last week on a fact-finding mission to learn about the F-35 fighter jets sited there.
They spend the hour sharing what they learned in Vermont, addressing listener questions, and discussing the political climate around the F-35s at the city and state level.
Chris Taylor is the State Representative for Wisconsin’s 76th Assembly District.
Amelia Royko-Maurer is a human rights advocate and a founding member of the Community Response Team.
Representative Chris Taylor is participating in a Community Speak Out event tonight from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the East Madison Community Center (8 Straubel Court). More information available here.
