Moving Wisconsin Forward
Governor Scott Walker
November 20, 2017

We are moving Wisconsin forward.

Just look at the results of our bold reforms for hard-working families — and see how far we’ve come.

Take how we’re moving Wisconsin forward for our workforce. More people are employed today than ever before. The percentage of people working is one of the best in the nation. And, for the first time ever, Wisconsin is a Top 10 state for business, according to Chief Executive Magazine.

State government just finished with a budget surplus for the sixth year in a row. Wisconsin is one of just three states with a fully-funded pension system, and is paying off past debt faster than it is taking it on. Three national agencies just upgraded our bond rating. …

That’s why Lt. Governor Kleefisch and I are thrilled to announce our plans to run for another term as your Governor and Lt. Governor – to advance even more reform and keep moving Wisconsin forward! …

We’ve come a long way, but there is more to be done. Together, we can keep moving Wisconsin forward.
