Campaign themes


Wimberger's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Economic Development and Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Wisconsin culture is ambitious and hard working. Government should enable this culture, not suppress or replace it with a bureaucratic monopoly. Taxes and regulation compliance are some of the largest costs to new and small businesses. In order for people to realize their ambitions and improve themselves and the economy, such costs need to be as low as possible. If we want people to succeed, they need to be able to get the fruits of their labor."


  • Excerpt: "I am in favor of vouchers to provide opportunities for those who feel like their present school system is failing them. While I have a high regard for public schools in Green Bay and their abilities to provide education, a voucher system puts such judgments about who should educate children where it should be- with the parents."


  • Excerpt: "Presently, department leaders propose a future budget that is about $2 billion beyond what is currently budgeted. I believe that any budget baseline should be $0. In other words, what last year's budget is in comparison to any proposal for the future is irrelevant. We should look at what is needed each year and decide what to fund, whether that is an increase or decrease in funding from the year earlier. However, there is no need to raise any tax to maintain good infrastructure at this time, as natural growth in the economy and reduction in bureaucratic inefficiencies will account for needs."

2Nd Amendment Rights

  • Excerpt: "The right for citizens to own firearms is of the most important rights, since firearms are the only true way for a population at large to deter oppression from within. Foreign powers are also deterred from invading as they would be mired in an impossible rebellion if they managed to defeat our armed forces."
