From my in box:
I wanted you to be among the first to know that, as of this morning, I’m running for governor of Wisconsin.
Helping to turn my family’s business, Trek Bicycle, into a global company has been a big part of my life. Now I’d like to help make our great home state of Wisconsin even better as your governor. At Trek, I led strategic planning for nine years, and it was my job to open up new global markets.
Today, we’ve grown to almost 1,000 employees right here in Wisconsin. I’m proud of that, but I also know there are small businesses all over our state who’ve got everything it takes to dream just as big.
That’s why when you look at states like Minnesota, Indiana and Ohio you wonder what the heck’s going on. Because Wisconsin ranks 45th in projected job growth.
Just like Washington, our state capitol has become so focused on politics and winning the next political fight that it’s pulling our state apart and our economy down. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
I’m running for governor because we can do better than that. A lot better. But to do it, we’ve got to make some real changes in Madison. I know winning won’t be easy. That’s why I need you to be part of my campaign.
After watching my announcement video – will you spread the word and tell your friends and family?
I know the great possibilities of this state. I know we can achieve them if we work together.
Please join me in working for an even better Wisconsin,
