Weekly Radio Address: Working for Wisconsin









Madison – Governor Scott Walker released his Weekly Radio Address today titled, “Working for Wisconsin.”

Hi, this is Scott Walker.

This week, we continued our work to build a better Wisconsin by announcing two new Project SEARCH sites under our Better Bottom Line initiative. Project SEARCH is a great program that helps young adults with disabilities get the employment training and skills they need to enter the workforce.

You see, when employers recognize the unique abilities of these students, it improves their bottom line. We are working to connect individuals with disabilities with the resources and the training they need to move towards greater independence and success in the workforce.

Countless employers across the state are already benefiting from working with these individuals and the hard work and dedication they bring to work, which is why we invested additional funds to expand Project SEARCH in our Blueprint for Prosperity.

Going forward, we are focused on continuing to improve workforce readiness for all Wisconsinites – so that everyone can enjoy the freedom and prosperity that comes from work.

UPDATE: Delaware Girl Found Safe in Massachusetts, Father Arrested


UPDATE: Elinor Trotta, 3, has been found safe in Massachusetts. Her father, Michael has been arrested.


A Delaware girl who was allegedly kidnapped by her father was found safe Tuesday afternoon, while her father was taken into police custody.

New Jersey State Police announced Tuesday afternoon that Elinor Trotta, 3, had been recovered by police in Massachusetts. She was safe in police hands, New Jersey State Police said.

Her father — Michael Trotta, 43 – was taken into custody, state police said.

A multi-state AMBER Alert had been issued for Elinor, and police earlier believed she was “in imminent danger.”

“As with all incidents involving a child, we are deeply concerned for her safety and we are doing everything humanly possible to bring her back,” New Castle County Chief of Police Col. Elmer Setting said.

New Castle County, Delaware Police said the girl’s mother called police Monday night to report that her ex-boyfriend had just come to her home, assaulted her and took Elinor.

Originally, it was believed that Trotta fled in a 1989 gray Mazda, but police said that vehicle has since been recovered. They said they are now looking for a bright red SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer.

Police said Trotta had last been seen in the area of a rest stop in Mount Laurel, New Jersey before he was found, and said Trotta was considered armed and dangerous.

Holding back tears during a news conference Tuesday morning, Elinor’s mother had made an emotional plea for help in finding her daughter.

“She doesn’t have any clothes with her or her toys or anything that she likes” Dawn Barkus said. “My heart is broken and I’m just begging anybody who knows where she is or him or whoever is helping him, please bring her home.”

Trotta had warrants for his arrest in connection with Monday’s incident, including reckless endangering and carjacking, police said.

He also had warrants for his arrest stemming from a previous assault on Feb. 15 involving Elinor’s mother, police said.



Alert for a 3-year-old girl who they say was kidnapped by her father after he assaulted her mother.

Police are looking for 43-year-old Michael Trotta and 3-year-old Elinor Trotta, saying they believe the girl “is in imminent danger.” Police believe he may be headed to Marinette, Wis., where Michael Trotta has family. They were last seen around 7 p.m. Monday.

New Castle County Police say the girl’s mother called police Monday night to report that her ex-boyfriend had just come to her home, assaulted her, and took Elinor.

Police have located the gray Mazda they had been looking for. It is now believed that Michael Trotta could be operating a bright red colored SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer. His last known location is the area of Mount Laurel, NJ.

He’s described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 160 pounds, balding, and with a scruffy beard and mustache.

Elinor is 60 pounds with brown shoulder-length hair and was last seeing wearing a purple puffy coat, pink pants and “Frozen” sneakers.

Authorities say anyone with information or who sees the pair, should not take action on their own, but call 911 immediately.
