UPDATE: Mitt Romney to Visit Muskego Saturday

GOP candidate and likely nominee for president will hold a town hall meeting at InPro Saturday afternoon as part of a tour of the state.

As part of a weekend tour of the state, Mitt Romney, Republican candidate for president and frontrunner for the GOP nomination, will make a stop in Muskego at on Saturday.

The town hall style meeting is set for 12:25 p.m. and will be part of a weekend of stops the candidate has planned, just prior to Wisconsin's primary election on Tuesday.

UPDATE: InPro will open its doors at about 11 a.m. and allow residents in on a first come, first serve basis. Everyone will be required to enter through the east building employee entrance. Do anticipate a wait prior to entry as candidates now come with secret service detail; generally you will be asked to empty your coat pockets, or have your purse opened before you will be admitted in.

Parking will be controlled by InPro.  Volunteers will be on hand to direct you where to park, according to Evan Bane, corporate and PR Programs Manager.

Romney's schedule in Wisconsin will begin on Friday, with a speech at Lawrence University in Appleton in the afternoon and a stop at a fish fry at Serb Hall.

Before visiting Muskego, Romney, along with GOP candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, at the Country Springs Hotel in Waukesha.

He will head out from InPro to drop by a phone bank for Gov. Scott Walker in Fitchburg before returning to Waukesha Saturday night for a Lincoln Day dinner back Country Springs Hotel. Fellow Republican and rival candidate Rick Santorum also is schedule to speak at that event.

Wow. A presidential front runner is coming to Muskego and NO ONE has a comment?? I should find out where he stands on the lake park issue...

Denise, that's hilarious. This is awesome that we get a presidential candidate to visit our town.

Bonnie, How did that happen that he would come to Muskego? You tell anyone your from Muskego and it's like "where?" It is kind of cool that he will be here though.

I had the same reaction....where on earth would he be appearing?? InPro is the ideal spot here, and it's often overlooked by residents. It's a global company that has also brought jobs back here from their New Berlin offices. I don't recall any presidential candidate coming here.

Thought I would repost this from it's original location on Patch since it seems relevant. I would like to remind those who are initiating this recall that PHIL ZIEGLER OF IN PRO, (you know that very successful business here in Muskego that employs many of our residents and contributes greatly to our tax base, and the one that Republican candidate Mitt Romney chose to visit tomorrow while campaigning in WI), came to one of the earlier Common Council meetings, SPOKE IN SUPPORT OF THE LAKE PARK and said something to the effect that a city that isn't moving forward in it's development, will stagnate and not attract future business. Mr. Ziegler also stated that buying real estate during a recession is a very wise move and that he recently purchased a facility in New Berlin for future use. Note: Check the Common Council minutes for his exact words. Will Mr. Ziegler eventually get fed up with all the dysfunctionality of a small core minority of residents and move In Pro to New Berlin or another city? And then there is the damage being done to Muskego's reputation by that small core minority who continually run to local TV stations for one-sided coverage that casts a very disparaging view of Muskego. Do we once again want Muskego to become the laughing stock of the Metropolitan Milwaukee area? If so, what businesses will want to settle here and who will want to move here with their family? Perhaps Mr. Romney can help our primarily Republican base understand!
