Last week, Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance hosted a breakfast reception at the Hampshire House in Boston with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Governor Walker, who was in Boston for the Republican Governors Association Conference, spoke to the Mass Fiscal team and supporters about his hopes for the future of America and the work he is doing in Wisconsin to help Americans prosper.
The Governor impressed upon the group the importance of values-based leadership and the urgency to keep working towards our goals.
