IS REDPRAIRIE NEXT? On the heels of the announcements from Harley DavidsonFiskarsand whispers from Kohls, could the next hammer to drop be Waukesha based RedPrairie?

Last year, they abandoned plans for their new technology park and corporate headquarters.  Now, the CEO is leaving Wisconsin and the Georgia Department of Economic Development says "no comment." As early as 2006, these rumors have been swirling, with the former CEO stating the taxes here were too high. 

Where is our Dept. of Commerce and why isn't Wisconsin working overtime to lure jobs from Georgia to our state? 

As the next Lt. Governor, I will make creating a better business climate "Job #1"
