Let’s Strengthen Wisconsin Together
Four years ago, I ran for office promising to reduce taxes, simplify the tax code, reform government, and strengthen education. I said we needed to get government out of the way so the private sector could create jobs.
Together, we’ve cut taxes and improved the tax code. We’ve reformed government by strengthening accountability to its citizens. We’ve made historic investments in education.
Most importantly, consider our economic successes since I took office in 2015:
- Wisconsin has added 90,500 private sector jobs, 43,500 in 2017 alone!
- 3,459 more people are employed in Sheboygan County, 656 more in Manitowoc County, and 1,230 in Calumet County!
- Unemployment is at a record low 2.9%, down from 5%!
This year, Sheboygan and Manitowoc both received top-ten national recognition for economic development. U.S. News and World Report ranked Wisconsin as having the 3rd best quality of life in the country.
However, we aren’t done yet. Now we need to focus on addressing workforce challenges, improving healthcare quality, continuing to make Wisconsin government accountable, and fixing the school funding formula – all while holding the line on taxes and reforming the tax code.
It has been an honor and privilege serving you the last 4 years. New challenges and new opportunities await Wisconsin over the next four years. Let’s strengthen Wisconsin together.
