Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker highlights a worker training program he launched five years ago in the first television ad of his 2018 re-election campaign, which started airing statewide on Tuesday.
The ad features a woman named Shayla, an emergency medical technician and firefighter with the Hartland Fire Department & Lake Country Fire & Rescue. Shayla started attending a technical college to become a first responder a year after Walker signed the Wisconsin Fast Forward program into law, according to Walker’s campaign.
“I have a chance to save lives every day. Gov. Walker is helping people like me get the training we need,” Shayla says in the ad, which is set to air on TV and online.
