Walker to host job creation forums

Over the coming weeks, Gov. Scott Walker and his key economic development cabinet secretaries will hold a series of job creation forums with business leaders in various parts of the state to listen to the concerns of job creators and have a discussion of what the state can do to encourage job growth.
“With the national economy slowing and Washington facing more potential gridlock we will be talking with job creators across the state about what more Wisconsin can do to encourage job growth here,” Walker said. “Wisconsin has outperformed the nation this year, but we aren’t immune from what’s happening nationally. As Washington plays politics with jobs, my administration will continue to listen to ways we can create stability and confidence in our state. These forums will allow us to talk with job creators on the frontlines about what more the state can do to encourage more jobs in Wisconsin.”
Walker will be joined at the forums by the secretaries or deputy secretaries of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Financial Institutions, the Department of Tourism, the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority and the Department of Workforce Development.
"We welcome Gov. Walker’s continued focus on jobs and his commitment to making sure his administration is a strong partner working side by side with the business people on the front lines of job creation and economic growth in Wisconsin," said Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) president Tim Sheehy.
The first forum is scheduled to happen next week in La Crosse with additional forums scheduled for Milwaukee and Green Bay.
