Hi, this is Scott Walker.
As we continue our work on the next state budget, I’ve been meeting with people throughout the state about what is important to you, and how to reach our goals.
At these events we’ve held in places including La Crosse, Green Bay and Madison, I laid out my top priorities – creating jobs, developing our workforce, investing infrastructure, transforming education and reforming government.
The input we have received so far has been great. People offered input and suggestions, voiced concerns and asked questions on topics ranging from health care to education.
What I’ve heard so far is that people want a government that operates on common sense. You want lower taxes and less waste. You want clean air and water, and reasonable regulations for business.
You told me you want an unemployment system that helps people move on and move up.
We talked about the need for more good-paying jobs, and I heard support for investment options for businesses and environmentally sound mining.
You told me you want an education system that allows you to get credit for the skills and the knowledge that you have. We talked about ways to promote manufacturing to the younger generation.
This is a great start. We have more Talk With Walker events planned and I look forward to gathering more information as lay out the financial plan to move Wisconsin forward.
