Are you ready to apologize to the people of Wisconsin for hiring the son of a donor, Brian Deschane, to an administration position when better qualified candidates had also applied?
“That person was five levels below me. When that hiring was brought to my attention I had my staff go back and have that person taken out of that position and I acknowledge the fact that there are more qualified people and I asked another person be put into that.”

How much money does requiring an annual vote for union representation save the state of Wisconsin?
“That particular part doesn’t save any.”
How much does prohibiting employees from paying union dues from paychecks save the state of Wisconsin?
“It would save employees up to $1000 per year they could use to pay for pensions and health care contribution.” “It’s to give workers a right. It’s to give workers the right to choose.”
