Neumann says state’s business climate would be top priority

    Former congressman Mark Neumann, a Republican candidate for governor of Wisconsin, told an audience at the Milwaukee Press Club’s Newsmaker Luncheon this week that his goal is to make Wisconsin the best place in the world to do business.
    Neumann said he would accomplish that goal by reducing government spending, cutting taxes and improving regulation of business in the state.
    “I would like to roll back the Doyle tax increases,” he said. Neumann said he also wants to cut income and sales taxes “across the board.”
    Neumann said he would form an economic development team of Wisconsin business leaders that would travel to other states that are attracting jobs and find out how they are doing so. Neumann said his administration would create a strategic plan to attract business and jobs to Wisconsin that improves on the methods of other growing states.
    Then the state would use an extensive marketing plan to promote its business attraction initiatives, he said.
    “We need to improve our business climate,” Neumann said. “My vision is for Wisconsin to be the best place in the country and the best place in the world to do business. We will measure that objective by seeing if we are attracting more jobs than any other state in the country.”
    Neumman said his administration would do an extensive cost-benefit analysis of any incentive package that the state provides to attract a business.
