Wauwatosa – Governor-elect Scott Walker, surrounded by family and friends on November 2nd in Pewaukee, thanked supporters for the overwhelming victory in the election, and declared that "Wisconsin is Open for Business."
"Throughout this campaign, we have told the people of Wisconsin that ‘help is on the way,’ but tonight I’d like to tell the world that Wisconsin is open for business!” said Walker. "Tonette and I are so thankful for the love and support of our family and friends, and most especially the trust and confidence of the voters of Wisconsin who are ready to bring 250,000 jobs to our state."
"I know right now there are businesses ready to put people back to work, but they’re concerned our state is headed in the wrong direction, and they’re worried about what government might do next. Tonight, we begin the process of recovery as we commit to working together to help employers maintain and grow jobs, rather than make it more expensive for employers and families to make ends meet."
"I want every worker, every family, and every business, big or small, to know that they have an ally in the governor’s office."
"Tonight I declare that Wisconsin is open for business!"
