Burke in Plover Friday to Talk Jobs Plan
By Patrick Lynn
Gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke is coming to Plover on Friday.
Burke will be at Point Precision, 2675 Precision Drive, at 2:45 PM to a tour of the facility and hold a roundtable discussion of her jobs plan, which she calls “Invest for Success”.
In a statement released Thursday, Burke said “we’re not even close” to having a thriving economy under Governor Scott Walker.
Burke is the former Trek Bicycle executive and became Walker’s first competition for the November election.
Burke’s 5- point plan includes building the economy under “industry clusters”, building on the state’s core strengths like agriculture and manufacturing, develop and align a 21st century workforce with higher education and training, focusing on entrepreneurs and new businesses, competing globally top ten economy and investing in community development.
“I’m a business person, so I view this as a starting point,” Burke said. “I want feedback and input into the plan from business owners, workers, entrepreneurs, students, researchers- let me know what you think, because this plan isn’t just for the campaign: it’s the playbook I’ll use to strength Wisconsin’s economy and middle class starting the day I’m sworn in.”
