TIME today named Governor Scott Walker to the 2014 TIME 100, its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
“I am certainly humbled by this honor,” Governor Walker said. “But being named to this list is not about me, this is about our bold reforms and what they have accomplished. Together, we turned a $3.6 billion deficit into a nearly $1 billion surplus, cut taxes by $2 billion, and helped the private sector create more than 100,000 jobs and nearly 17,000 new businesses. We are turning things around, and we are moving Wisconsin forward!"
The TIME 100 list is in its 11th year and recognizes the activism, innovation, and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals. The full list appears in the May 5 issue of time and is now at http://time.com/time100.
