From the Desk of Mark Green... Today I announced my endorsement and support for Scott Walker to be the next governor of Wisconsin.
I proudly worked with Scott when we were lonely voices calling for fiscal responsibility as freshman state legislators in Madison back in 1993.
I knew Scott was the right person to take on the political machine in Milwaukee after a pension scandal rocked county government and build a movement based on accountability to the taxpayers. And, I look forward to calling Scott Walker my governor.
Scott Walker’s common sense and commitment to fiscal discipline are exactly what Madison needs to get our state back on track and our economy growing again. Scott has cut the debt in Milwaukee County by 10%, reduced the workforce by 20%, and introduced eight consecutive budgets without an increase to the property tax levy from the previous year. He even had an $8.9 million surplus at the same time Governor Doyle and the Democratic controlled legislators have left our state with a $2 billion budget hole. I am proud to stand with Scott Walker. Will you join me in standing with Scott with a donation of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100 or more towards his campaign for governor? I know how much time, support and resources it takes to run a statewide campaign, and your help is critical to ensuringScott Walker becomes our next governor.
Already, the Doyle-Barrett political machine has aired attack ads against Scott on television. Will you stand with me and support Scott with a donation today to fight these negative attack ads?
Scott is a good friend and I know he’ll be a wonderful governor. Join with me in helping Scott’s campaign and let’s take back our government!
