MADISON – Governor Scott Walker released the following statement in honor of Father’s Day.  

On Father’s Day, it’s important that we all recognize the important role dads play both in shaping their kids’ lives and in helping Wisconsin’s communities. Today’s a day to thank our dads for their constant strength, support, and dedication in helping us grow. Dads teach us the value of working hard and never giving up on our dreams. A special thank you to my father, Llew Walker, for his constant encouragement and guidance that made me the person I am today. Also, thank you to my sons, Matt and Alex, for allowing me to have the best job in the world—being a dad—nothing compares to the immense joy and fulfillment that fatherhood brings.

From one father to another, I wish all the dads, grandpas, step-dads, and foster dads in Wisconsin a Happy Father’s Day.
