Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful young daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.
Another interesting week.
Pictured above, Governor Walker attends a ribbon cutting for a 27,000 sq. ft. expansion at Therma-Tron-X in Sturgeon Bay - their 3rd expansion in the past 4 years!
The Governor tours EMTEQ Inc. in New Berlin to see a $6 million expansion that is expected to help create more than 100 new jobs.
Governor Walker extended his congratulations to Lockheed Martin and Marinette Marine on ten years of building littoral combat ships in Wisconsin.
Governor Walker also congratulated the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater. The Warhawks beat Emory 7-0 Tuesday in the championship game of the Division III World Series to become the first NCAA school to win titles in football, men's basketball and baseball in one calendar year.
Dairy, taxes, and energy: Governor Walker sat down to discuss those issues with agriculture media.
Last Sunday at a state Department of Veterans Affairs Memorial Day ceremony held at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Governor Walker spoke:
“Freedom: endowed by our Creator, defined by our Constitution and defended each and every day by the men and women who proudly wear the uniform of these United States — to everyone serving today, to all those who have served, and to all of us who love them, I say a thank you.”
The Governor also appeared at ceremonies in Madison…
And Wood National Cemetery in Milwaukee.
Of course there was news about the campaign. I really enjoyed Christian Schneider’s column in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “Mary Burke: The candidate who isn’t there.” So true.
Schneider exposes Burke again here:
It is unclear what bill Republicans could have passed over the past four years that would have "suppressed" inner city violence. But it takes a special brand of tendentiousness to stand in a city governed by a Democratic mayor, Democratic county district attorney and liberal county executive, and blame statewide Republicans for violence in Milwaukee.
And we end this week with a new video that's a great reminder.
