Petryk Statement on the Governor Walker’s State of the State Address
Madison –State Representative Warren Petryk (R-Eleva) issued the following statement following the conclusion of Governor Walker’s state of the state address:
“The Governor’s state of the state address described not only how great Wisconsin is doing but also that our state’s future is bright and moving in the right direction. Not only is our state’s unemployment rate at a historic fourteen-year low, but more jobs are being created and those who want a job are more able to obtain a job.
“Moving forward, the Legislature and the Governor will work together to continue our efforts to improve worker training and ensure that the skilled workforce needed for today’s jobs is available. As a member of the Speaker’s Task Force on Youth Workforce Readiness, I am pleased that the Governor is supporting initiatives to help our young people find exciting and rewarding careers in high-demand employment fields. Also, the Legislature and the Governor will address other important issues such as the state’s heroin and opiate epidemic, Alzheimer’s and dementia, lowering student debt and making education more affordable, and public safety.
“I hope that everyone listening tonight, including my constituents of the 93rd Assembly District, are as encouraged as I am about the state of our state. My pledge is to continue working hard for you in Madison to improve our great communities. On Wisconsin!”
