About Governor Walker: Scott Walker grew up in a small Wisconsin town called Delavan. The son of a pastor, Scott had the spirit of service instilled in him at an early age. He was involved in sports, band, church, and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He worked part-time as a dish washer and eventually flipped burgers at McDonald’s in high school.
While serving as Wisconsin’s 45th Governor, Scott Walker has proposed bold reforms that have eliminated the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit without raising taxes and gave school districts and local governments the tools to balance their budgets without the massive layoffs seen in other states. To date, these profound changes have saved Wisconsin taxpayers some $3 billion.
Governor Walker has also cut taxes by $2 billion for individuals, families, farmers, seniors, and small businesses since taking office. In fact, after skyrocketing by 27 percent in the decade before Governor Walker took office, property taxes on a median-valued home will actually be lower in 2014 than they were in 2010.
Governor Walker set an aggressive goal to help Wisconsin’s private sector create 250,000 jobs and he stands by it. We’re not there yet, but we’re on our way. After years of record job loss, Wisconsin has created over 100,000 jobs during the Walker administration.
In fact, more jobs were created in Scott Walker’s first three years than in former Governor Jim Doyle’s first three years, more jobs were created in Scott’s first three years than in Doyle’s first four years, more jobs were created in Scott’s first three years than in all eight years of Jim Doyle’s time as Governor. Nearly twice as many jobs were created during Scott Walker’s first three years as were created during the three years Mary Burke worked for Governor Doyle.
Governor Walker’s number one priority is helping the people of this state create jobs. He will keep that focus so that everyone who wants a job, can find a job.
On June 5, 2012, Scott Walker became the first governor in American history to win a recall election. He won the election with more votes and by a higher percentage than he had won in 2010. Since then, he has continued to push bold reforms that keep power in the hands of the hard working taxpayers of Wisconsin.
Scott is married to Tonette and they have two sons in college – Matt and Alex. They are active members of their church in Wauwatosa and remain involved with numerous charitable programs.
