Governor Walker made some key points this week:
Unemployment rate for June in WI is 5.7% - best since Oct. 2008 & well below US rate.
WI created 32,300 more jobs in our 1st 42 months than were created in Gov. Doyle's 1st 42 months.
So far, 21,050 net new business entities have formed since we took office (our goal was 10,000 by 2015).
2014 unemployment insurance claims through Week 27 are running lowest since 2000.
The same team of professionals that worked for Gov. Doyle advised us on appropriate security levels. We follow their lead. Attending the National Governors Association meetings this weekend and seeing all of the security details for Governors from both parties is a reminder of that things have changed over recent years. I, like most Governors, take our direction on security from professionals in the state patrol.
That last one is important because liberals are critical of the Governor’s increase in security. Highly ironic given liberals created the chaos at the Capitol. Their threats and intimidation caused the need for heightened security. Governor Walker had this great line when questioned about this by reporters:
"Have you been asleep for the past three years?"
In West Allis, Governor Walker celebrated the $3.9 million expansion of Brookdale Senior Living Community that creates 202 new jobs.
