THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR MARY BURKE ROLLED
OUT HER FIRST MAJOR POLICY PROPOSAL THIS MORNING...
POLITICAL REPORTER JESSICA ARP HAS MORE FROM MILWAUKEE.
mary burke not only rolling out her jobs plan today
but giong on full attack at a forum at marquette university
i brought here not only my own plan but i brought
governor walkers plan from 2010, this is 4 pages,
ive seen 8th grade term papers that frankly have more
work put into them
ON THE ISSUES
THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR SHARED PARTS
OF HER 40 PAGE JOBS PLAN.
we're going to align our key economic development
strategies around our industry clusters
BURKE WANTS TO BUILD
STATE SUPPORTS AROUND THOSE CLUSTERS...
AND SIGNIFICANTLY BOOST VENTURE CAPITAL SPENDING...
BUT WON'T PICK A SPECIFIC JOB NUMBER TARGET.
INSTEAD CITING JOB GROWTH AS A GOAL.
well you have to take into account how the eocnomy
in the nation as a whole is growing and thats why
i compare it and say a top 10 thriving economy because
it takes accoutn of how the economy overall in the
us is growing :02 and so that is a goal, its a very
specific goal :06
actions speak louder than words, we have been doing
that with clusters, wether
its with agriculture, manufactruing,
clean water technology biosciences, thats all things
we focused on not just with individual employers but
we've been doing that over the last 3 years
FOR HIS PART GOVERNOR WALKER SAYS HE'LL ROLL OUT HIS
OWN NEW JOBS PLAN IN LATE APRIL...
AND DISMISSES BURKE'S CRITICISM.
of course thats what someobdy is going to say if they
were part of an administration that lost 133 thousand
jobs and 27k businesses
26;38 you can call names, i'm not going to get into
name calling, i'm going to talk about results
the jobs plan rollout comes the day after he signed
his tax cut into law but burke wouldnt give any credit
to the governor for the states economic success saying
he'd only taken the state backward :37 republicans
have been throwing the same charge at burke :42 at
mu, ja, wisc news three :44
