Jim Ward (Wisconsin)
|Wisconsin State Senate, District 28|
|High school||St. Ignatius High School|
|Bachelor's||Marquette University (1999)|
On his campaign website Ward listed the following major issues:
- Create Jobs by Supporting Local Businesses
- "Wisconsin, according to Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, is behind 40 other states in its rate of job growth in 2011. Wisconsin lags behind other Midwestern states such as Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Instead of focusing on job creation the GOP focused on issues that play well with social conservatives."
- Strengthen Education
- "I’d work towards restoring some of the over $1 billion cuts to education. We keep seeing that school districts have to lay off more teachers and cut programs. This will have lasting effects on the education of your children and grandchildren. I will work towards restoring some of the cuts to education. We also need to make sure that our schools are meeting the needs of the workforce. I believe that education is the primary driver of economic prosperity and upward mobility. Jobs, education and successful communities all go together. An investment in education is an investment in our future."
- "I’m a moderate Democrat & I believe people are looking for government officials who will represent the best interests of the people and not extreme politics that divide us. We need to restore politics back to the Wisconsin Way. I come with an open mind and will be able to listen to all sides of an issue. I come with no secret agenda. I will represent the people and not special interests or party leaders. I also promise not to sign any secrecy agreements that deny public input, unlike my opponent."
