THAT MAY INCLUDE LAYING THE GROUNDWORK FOR ANOTHER
RUN FOR GOVERNOR.
POLITICAL REPORTER JESSICA ARP SAT DOWN WITH HIM TODAY
AND ASKED HIM ABOUT THAT.
AND MUCH MORE.
now that we're into 2016, whats your focus as you
look toward a legislative agenda this year :40
2 SOTW1 44
really its building off of what i said when i ran
for re-election in 2014 which was everybody who wants
a job can find a job ;47
2 SOTW2 45
its really going to be about workforce devlopment
not just in technical colleges or apprenticeships,
those are all imoprtant :23 but even looking at ways
to invest in our k12 public education system not as
a blank check but as ways to get young people ready
to pursue careers :33
3 VO/MINI-DISCW3 55
THE GOVERNOR SAYS THAT MAY INCLUDE EXPANSION OF DUAL
ENROLLMENT PROGRAMS CONNECTING HIGH SCHOOL KIDS TO
TECH COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES...
AND CHANGING PERCEPTIONS ABOUT SKILLED TRADES.
3 SOTW4 44
part of it isnt just government prorams but trying
to change the perspective the public's view of some
of those positions :39
4 VO/MINI-DISCW5 53
THE GOVERNOR WILL ALSO HAVE TO WORK ON THE PUBLIC'S
VIEW OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS.
HE SAYS HE'S STILL MONITORING D-O-C'S HANDLING OF
A CHILD ABUSE AND MISCONDUCT INVESTIGATION AT THE
STATE'S YOUTH PRISON...
1 SOTW6 46
do you think that anyone will be prosecuted? :43
i think its very likely from what we've heard preliminarily
that there will be some action, the degree of which
is up to the department of justice :52
4 SOTW7 46
14;00 JESSICAdo you believe that may be upper echelons
of the administration or correctional officers themselves
14;06 WALKERthat one, i dont want to prejudge the
dept of justice, we're goign to let them go where
it takes them :12
4 SOTW8 46
do you still have confidence in secretary ed wall
or are you considering a change in that office? :05
again, a lot of innuendo by some outlets out there,
but the bottom line is everything we've said from
early on in the process about how the dept of corrections
found this, the actions they took, when they learned
about the severity has continued to be consistent
throughout this all :20
2 VO/MINI-DISCW9 55
WALKER SAYS HE WILL LOOK AT WAYS TO ATTRACT AND KEEP
BUT HIS FOCUS MORE LARGELY IS ON A LISTENING TOUR
AND HE SAYS.
A 20 YEAR PLAN.
2 SOTW10 45
given that you're looking so long term, will you look
at running for a third term to accomplish those things
sure thats absolutely something we'll look at, it
wont be a decision we'll make for a year or so, but
its certainly something as we look at the long term
and listen to what people are saying say how much
more do i want to do and do the people of this state
want done and if i feel i can continue to add value
to the people of this state to be around to see those
plans through, absolutely :39
THE GOVERNOR SAYS HE PLANS TO ROLL OUT MORE OF HIS
IDEAS IN THE STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS ON JANUARY
