MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker is offering a bold promise of jobs for the state if he’s elected governor.
The Republican said the state’s business climate is hurting because of too much government interference. He said his six-step plan will bring 250,000 jobs and 10,000 new businesses to the state by 2015.
Walker’s plan includes lowering taxes, limiting regulations and improving health care and infrastructure.
Walker spoke Tuesday at the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce business day in Madison. He offered few specifics of his plan, saying he wanted to introduce the key points now and will revisit them in coming weeks.
Earlier Tuesday his Democratic rival, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, pledged to attract employers through tax credits for job creation.
