Sturgeon Bay (WFRV) Governor Scott Walker is back on the road again for day two of his 'Wisconsin Forward Tour'.
The governor stopped at Pro Products, Inc in Sturgeon Bay Thursday. Governor Walker says the company is an example of how Wisconsin businesses have been growing under his leadership and continue to do so.
In the last two years, Pro Products added ten jobs to a workforce that is now just over 30 and there are plans to add more employees. Company owner Steven Hurley say the Governor's policies helped them grow.
" I believe the things he is doing in Madison is helping us as small business owners and small businesses to be able to conduct better business." Said Steven Hurley.
The Governor's message Thursday was simple--- it's time to move the state forward by helping businesses grow and create jobs. And Governor Walker believes Republicans and Democrats can work together to do that.
"I think on things dealing with matching people with skill sets they need and manufacturing jobs open today. I think looking at workforce development issues overall are things that are really partisan. We start on those issues. Those are important issues, but they are also easy issues to work together on." Said Governor Walker.
The governor plans to invite all 132 lawmakers in the Legislature to a brat, burger and Wisconsin beer get together-- so Republicans and Democrats can start working together.
