Walker focusing on jobs for remainder of term
Governor won recall election
MADISON, Wis. — While Gov. Scott Walker has overcome a recall effort, he doesn’t lack for challenges as he completes his first term.
Where does Walker begin? It’s a safe bet the talk at next week’s “brat summit” and for much of the rest of his term will be about one thing: jobs.
To date, Walker hasn’t made much progress on his 2010 campaign promise to create 250,000 jobs during his four years in office. Just how many jobs Wisconsin has added — or lost — during his watch was a key issue in the recall campaign.
Walker hasn’t shied away from the pledge, bringing it up at his first cabinet meeting after the recall. But just what he’s going to do to fulfill it has yet to come into focus.
