Refuses contributions

11 Feb, 2003

Walker ends a tradition by refusing to accept contributions to his reelection campaign from county employees. He will return any contributions already given and he does not expect them to attend his fund-raising events. He wants to evaluate his employees on their merits, not on their political loyalty.

I’ve seen too many times in government where the expectation to give comes with the job.
