-generation wisconsinite. my grandpa george was a mailman used to deliver the mail to the house i live in today. every day i am reminded of my wisconsin roots in the values i was brought up on. one of those i use is that everyone deserves a fair shot to get ahead if they are willing to put in the hard work. unfortunately, that opportunity is getting out of reach for too many. walkerars ago, governor promised us jobs. we're not even close. we are dead last in the midwest in terms of job creation. his approach is not working. the typical wisconsin family has seen real income drop nearly $3000 in the last four years. $3000. governor walker cut taxes for those on the top while raising them for working families and making the biggest cuts to education in the country. as a businessperson who opt create good paying jobs in wisconsin, i know how to do this. first, we will invest in education, not cut it. the tax breaks for the wealthy and focus on small businesses. third, reduce the cost of college. the economy is not better until it is better for you, and we can do better. a lot better.
