Statement of Principles

WE HONOR TRADITION.

Wisconsin’s proud traditions of education, cooperation, and smart government have led to an exceptional quality of life and a strong business environment.

These traditions, combined with our strong work ethic, have positioned our rural and urban businesses, large and small, to grow our economy.

WE BUILD COMMUNITY.
We recognize that our economy, now and into the future, depends on a healthy, well-educated workforce; thriving fields, forests and waterways; and the infrastructure that unites them.

Real economic freedom stems from policies that ensure a high standard of living for everyone.

Government has a valid and vital role in creating and maintaining the infrastructure that supports a resilient economy, including internet access, roads and rail lines, natural and cultural assets, and public utilities such as power and water.

WE DRIVE INNOVATION. 
Innovation powers our modern economy. It results from mutual respect between employers and employees, and between government and private enterprise.

The public and private sectors contribute to a vibrant, innovative, and modern economy.
