Hulsey Campaign: 

New Analysis Shows Gov. Walker, Dem. Opponent Both Outsourced Wisconsin Jobs
As Governor, I Will Create Jobs Here, Not China, Ireland, or Illinois 

Madison, WI—A new analysis “Gov. Walker, Dem. Opponent Both Outsourced Wisconsin Jobs” by the Hulsey campaign shows both that Gov. Walker and Democratic challenger both outsourced Wisconsin jobs and failed to keep up with other states in creating jobs.

A recent Channel 27 news report revealed that Gov. Walker’s WI Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) gave money to corporations that outsourced jobs to Ireland and other countries. Under Walker, Wisconsin fell to 37th in the nation in creating jobs and lags all surrounding states.

“As Governor, I will create jobs in Wisconsin, not in Sichuan Province China like my Democratic opponent or Ireland like Governor Walker,” said Hulsey, a member of the Assembly Jobs Committee. “I will not allow Gov. Walker to give our tax money to companies that ship jobs to Ireland or other countries.”

The analysis shows how Ms. Burke co-owns her father’s company Trek bikes that outsourced more than 99% of the manufacturing to China and Taiwan where they pay workers as little as $3 per hour.

“As Governor, I will fight for Wisconsin workers and jobs, not outsource jobs like Governor Walker and my Democratic opponent,” Hulsey said.

In addition to Gov. Walker’s WEDC subsidizing jobs outsourcing, the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau memo and Hulsey Campaign analysis showed that Gov. Walker contributed to the loss of 14,500 job-years by giving up more than $1 billion in healthcare, train and Internet upgrades. Gov. Walker will cost an additional $1.95 billion and 19,500 jobs and healthcare benefits to more than 120,000 people if re-elected.

“Wisconsin workers can’t afford Governor Walker or to go back to the miserable jobs record of Ms. Burke. Vote for real change on August 12th to get Wisconsin working again,” Hulsey concluded.

State Representative Brett Hulsey MNS serves on the Assembly Jobs, Energy, and Tourisms Committees, has college degrees in Political Economy and Natural Science, was a Dane County Supervisor for 14 years, owns an energy and environmental consulting business, and helped build two advanced Wisconsin bioenergy plants.

State Rep. Brett Hulsey Needs Civil War Reenactors for Friday
Confederate soldiers to bid Gov. Walker, GOP farewell as they vote to leave the U.S.

Milwaukee, WI—Today State Representative Brett Hulsey, Democratic Candidate for Governor, put out a call for Confederate Civil War reenactors and citizens to bid Governor Walker and the Wisconsin GOP farewell as they consider a resolution to leave the United States at their Annual Convention in Milwaukee on Friday.

            “I want to bid Governor Walker and the Wisconsin Republicans farewell, and hope they enjoy the Confederacy,” Hulsey said. “I have lived and worked in the South and would rather they leave Wisconsin than take us backward and turn us into Wississippi.”

            Brett will outline some of Governor Walker and the WI GOP’s more backward actions like tolerating racist staff comments, making it harder for women and Native Americans to address discrimination, taking $1.5 billion from 2.6 million Wisconsin school children, students, and public servants, making it harder to vote, taking away healthcare from over 90,000 working people, ending studies on racial profiling, and others.

            “Governor Walker’s Reign of Error has made Wisconsin 2nd in the nation in losing jobs. To create a better future for our children, we should strive to be the best in the United States, not leave it,”said Hulsey, who grew up in Oklahoma and worked as the Southern Field Director for Cranston for President in 1984.

            “I am the Governor candidate who has fought with all my might to keep Governor Walker from turning Wisconsin into Wississippi,” Hulsey said. “If elected Governor, I will repeal these measures in the budget.”
            Representative Hulsey asked Confederate re-enactors and others wishing to bid Gov. Walker and the WI GOP farewell to meet on the public sidewalk at the Wisconsin Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Ave. at 3 PM. They will walk to Gov. Walker’s fundraiser at Turner Hall at 4:30.Please bring Conferderate flags, tasteful signs, no profanity please. They will sing favorite songs like the Woodie Guthrie classic, “So Long, It’s Been Good to Know Yuh” and the Confederate anthem “Dixie.”This will be a peaceful event, anyone screaming or advocating violence will be asked to leave.
            State Representative Brett Hulsey is the man with a plan to Get Wisconsin Working Again to reinvest $2.1 billion to create clean energy jobs, job training, public school, UW system, and technical colleges, reverse Gov. Walker’s tax increases on working families and seniors, save babies and reduce abortions, protect women’s rights, communities from strip mining, and create a Penokee Hills State Park instead of one of the world’s largest strip mines.  For more information, contact Brett Hulsey at Brett@Brett4us.org, or call 608-334-4994.

Dear Friends,

I am running for Governor to get Wisconsin working again.

Gov. Walker’s Reign of Error has made Wisconsin 2nd in the nation in job losses and 35th in the nation in job creation. By restoring Gov. Walker’s unnecessary cuts, we can prepare my two children and all our kids for higher wage jobs and put our neighbors back to work.

As a small business person who runs an energy and environmental consulting business, Better Environmental Solutions, I have worked on projects to create real jobs across our state from Cassville to Green Bay.

I am also the man with a plan-- my Get Wisconsin Working Again Plan which reinvests $2.1 billion to create clean energy jobs, increases job training, public school, UW system, and technical college investment, reverses the Walker tax increases on working families and senior citizens, saves babies, protects us from strip mining, and creates a Penokee Hills State Park instead of the world’s largest strip mine.

People want a real plan to put people to work, not more empty political rhetoric.

A former union vice president, I will make restoring worker safety, rights and bargained a top priority. We should restore worker rights and unnecessary pay cuts immediately to help jump start our economy and create safer workplaces.

Gov. Walker’s statement that we were ‘broke and $3 billion in debt’ was rated a ‘Pants on Fire’ lie by PolitifactWI and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. These extreme cuts were unnecessary. During the over 60 hours of Assembly debate, I offered a number of amendments to fix the Walker Unfair Despair Act 10.

I have more than three decades of public service experience that include four years in the State Assembly, 14 years on the Dane County Board, 17 years at the Sierra Club, Environmental Policy Advisor to the Clinton Gore Campaign in 1992, and Volunteer in Service to America, VISTA, in the Alaska Energy Office during the 70’s energy crisis.

My educational background includes studying at UW and Dartmouth College Thayer School of Engineering, a Master’s Degree in Natural Science from the University of Oklahoma, and a B.A. in Political Economy from Middlebury College.

I would appreciate your vote in the Democratic primary in August and the general election in November. Sign up, volunteer and help me out.


P.S. Tell all your friends too. Thanks!
