The Wisconsin Model:
Voters Support Real Leadership


Earlier this year, we saluted Governor Scott Walker and the majority of the Wisconsin
legislature for showing true leadership by enacting real budget reforms to rescue your
state’s economy.

These reforms are already making a positive impact — improving the state’s schools and
wiping out the structural deficit that threatened the state’s fiscal health.

Despite the positive results, the public sector labor unions are still seething about the
reforms and mounted recall elections last week against the state senators who supported
them.

The results?  Voters like you stood behind Wisconsin’s leaders and their fight for fiscal
responsibility. 

Even the New York Times recognized the significance of the election results, writing
that they were:

“A defeat to union groups ... who had spent months and millions of
dollars trying to wrestle away at least some of the state's political
power."

This shows firsthand the power of constituent action over special interest money.

It also shows lawmakers around the country that voters are willing to fight for those
who show bold leadership in the face of Big Labor attacks.

We wanted to take this opportunity to forward you this video of Governor Walker,
taken at our recent Governors Summit, in which he gave us some encouraging suggestions
on how you can get off the side lines and influence the conversation.

It’s time for real leadership in America.  Wisconsin has provided the example — let's hope
the rest of the country will learn from it and follow your lead.  

Sincerely,


Bill Miller
Senior Vice President and National Political Director
