Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to Address CPAC
Wow. The big names just keep on coming! Today the American Conservative Union announced that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is now a confirmed speaker for the 40th Annual CPAC being held March 14th –16th, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Check it out:
“I am honored to welcome Governor Scott Walker back to the CPAC stage in March,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “As the first governor in American history to win a recall election, Scott Walker has galvanized conservatives around the nation united against government waste and Big Labor, and in favor of balanced budgets and lower taxes.”
Wisconsin’s 45th Governor Scott Walker proposed bold reforms that eliminated the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit without raising taxes and gave school districts and local governments the tools needed to balance their budgets. These profound changes have saved Wisconsin taxpayers more than $1 billion. As a result, property taxes on a median valued home have gone down for the first time in 12 years. Prior to his election as governor, Scott Walker served in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1993 until becoming Milwaukee County Executive from 2002 – 2010 where he reduced the county’s debt by 30% and authored nine budgets without increasing property taxes.
Governor Walker joins an already impressive lineup of confirmed CPAC speakers including Former Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuño, Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Pat Toomey, Rep. Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, and Allen West.
I can’t wait!
