WASHINGTON DC – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will participate in CPAC 2017, America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists to be held Wednesday, February 22nd through Saturday February 25th. Gov. Walker’s track record of putting taxpayers first and standing up to the big government interests has earned him a reputation as a conservative reformer.
CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp said, “Scott Walker is a fine example of how hard-working Americans reward tough leaders willing to fight for conservative principles and exhibit courage in the face of liberal intimidation tactics. Over the years, conservatives have learned to hold up Gov. Walker’s many successes as a potential roadmap of how elected leaders and grassroots activists can work together to implement conservative solutions.”
“I’m honored to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference about what lies ahead as we continue to fight for the kinds of reforms that have Wisconsin moving forward,” said Governor Scott Walker. “This is an incredible time for conservative leaders and grassroots supporters to be gathering from across the country, and Wisconsin exemplifies the endless possibilities that exist as Republicans act on their commitment to take authority away from Washington and return it to the states.”
After winning the 2010 election, Gov. Walker began his administration with a $3.6 billion deficit and since has created a reputation of proposing bold reforms, producing balanced budgets, and most impressively, cutting taxes by nearly $5 billion and counting. Prior to his administration, Scott Walker was elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly and served from 1993 until becoming Milwaukee County Executive in 2002 for the next eight years. As the Milwaukee County Executive, he reduced the county’s debt by 30 percent and authored nine consecutive budgets that didn’t increase property taxes from the previous year.
CPAC 2017 will be held at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center at the National Harbor in Maryland, February 22nd through the 25th. Gov. Walker is an excellent addition to this year’s CPAC line-up as the theme is “We the People: Reclaiming America’s Promise.” For more information about CPAC, or to register as an attendee or as media, please visit http://cpac.conservative.org/.
