Wisconsin Democrats Hold Town Hall to Answer Questions about Foxconn

Local News

Wisconsin Democrats are touring the state in an effort to inform the public about the impact of Foxconn and the project it will have. 

This evening Representative Gordon Hintz of Oshkosh and Representative Amanda Stuck of Appleton were there to speak to a group and answer any questions they may have. 

Questions ranged from general costs,  how it will impact the environment as well as the money being taken from their roads. Currently, $134 million is being taken from state highway projects to help fund local streets for Foxconn.  

However, Rep. Hintz says that there are many unknowns at this point in time, “A lot of the concerns seem to be about the unknowns. What’s the future for LCD’s, will it be here in 20 years, what do the jobs actually look like.”

The earliest that Wisconsin will break even on the Foxconn deal would be in 2043.
