Skip to comments.Governor Of The Year – Scott Walker
Posted on 12/23/2011 11:40:33 AM PST by Fred
(Madison, WI) In 2011, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker(R) served as the embodiment of the state by state battle to balance budgets and the best symbol of the struggle between the two political parties about how best to meet those fiscal challenges. His first year will extend well into his second year, quite likely culminating in a recall election to remove him from office.
He has dominated the political debate on both sides. Defining the issues. He is cited by both Democrats and Republicans as the best of example of what is wrong, or what is right with a conservative approach to government. Although they will never admit it, many Democratic governors are different from Walker only in a matter of degrees.
Nearly every governor, regardless of party, began the year saying the current path of expensive pension and benefit packages for public employees is unsustainable. The way the issue exploded in Wisconsin is as much a function of the legal and legislative tools at Walkers disposal as it is about the specific route he chose to take.
This is why Governors Journal has selected Scott Walker as the 2011 Governor of the Year.

Makes me want to visit Wisconsin, register as an illegal alien Dim just so I can vote for Walker next time around - might as well make some of the illegal vote count for the good guys...
Most definitely in 2016 or 2020. I get the feeling that he's committed to getting rid of the riff raff in Wisconsin first.
Bumped to breaking news by admin mod.
I don’t live in Wisconsin but I do admire Gov. Walker and certainly hope he is NOT recalled. That would be a travesty.
I have great admiration for him... he sticks to his guns like none other.
Help me out, WI FReepers.. just so I have some argument points vs. a couple libs from WI... what is the deal with the lost jobs over the past few months? Is it due to unease over the possibility Walker will be recalled, or is something else at work? Just trying to get a handle on it. Thanks.
The man’s got guts!! Unfortunately he needs contributions to help fight off the big bucks coming from the unions. I believe his wb site is Friends for Scott Walker.
He is a Rock Star....Fearless and a true American!
Some seasonal jobs were lost, Wisconsin Dells, northern WI cabin rentals, basically tourism in general. All in all, the economy is improving in out state.
