Running for reelection, Walker takes on the populist role based on his accomplishments during his first two years in office. After taking over a fiscally troubled county government, Walker is getting things back on track with his anti-tax message, cutting the budget, direct appeals to the public, and a government that is downsized, reformed and open. He feels that the government is still inefficient enough to allow for more cuts.
I’m not anti-government, but I’m anti needless government bureaucracy. . . . Cleaning the mess left over from the last administration is often not easy, and it requires some dramatic actions…The people that were swept from power want it back, I need your help to continue reforming your county government.
