Gov. Walker reflects on MLK Day

MADISON, Wis. (WAOW) -- Governor Scott Walker attended two events in Wisconsin Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The first was the 17th annual breakfast hosted by the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee. Then the governor headed to the 34th annual tribute at the Capitol Rotunda.

Walker released the following statement, “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a brave man who had the courage to follow his convictions in the face of great adversity. Today, we celebrate a man who inspired a nation and led the charge for freedom, equality, and justice. His example continues to resonate and influence, and his legacy will never be forgotten.”

King was born Jan. 15, 1929, and the federal holiday is the third Monday in January.
