Governor Talks About Creative Economy During FDL Stop

Governor Scott Walker focused on the importance of building a “Creative Economy” during a stop in Fond du Lac Monday. He toured Mercury Marine then addressed a community gathering at the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts. Walker says in talking to his own sons he knows how important it is to build a life/work balance to attract the talent needed for our future workforces. He says it also means changing the way we look at work hours and structures so people can get out and enjoy our art, entertainment and tourism attractions. He says major businesses in Fond du Lac like Mercury Marine, came together to invest in the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts to enhance the community and make it more attractive to the skilled millennial workforce.

Walker Says Trump Will Concentrate On Workforce During Wisconsin Stops

Governor Walker says President Trump will concentrate on workforce issues during a stop in Wisconsin Tuesday. That will be the focus of a stop at Waukesha County Technical College, but later he will attend a fundraiser for Walker in Milwaukee who is gearing up for a run at a third term as governor. Governor Walker says he will officially announce after the state budget is passed, probably in mid-summer. He says Trump had offered after his election to recruit Walker as part of his team. Walker says he told Trump he would prefer being governor, which he thought was a better way of helping not only the state, but the country. But during a stop in Fond du Lac Monday Walker circled back to workforce issues. He says Trump can help the states talk about and do something about workforce issues. Walker says he and other governors will meet with President Trump at the White House Thursday to talk more about workforce issues.
