Without Dane County, Walker's Jobs and Economic Numbers would Tank!!!

Over 40 percent of Wisconsin's population growth came from Dane County, a place Republican Rep. Robin Vos said he'd like to spend less time in (well, voters could make that wish come true):
Vos: "Something about the water in Dane County, which is why I try to stay here as little as I can."
Dane County and its liberal hell hole Madison, appears to be the states destination for people seeking a better quality of life, business opportunity, and of course jobs.

Gov. Scott Walker disagrees. He trashed Madison mayor and gubernatorial candidate Paul Soglin:
Walker's tweet wasn't just wrong, see below, but ironically clueless when he blamed the loss of Oscar Mayer on Soglin. Walker's very own WEDC failed to step in and try to save the jobs.  And technically, you could say as governor, Walker lost both Oscar Mayer and Kimberly Clark...etc:


Funny thing about the phrase "the last thing we need is more Madison in our lives:" That was how Republicans trashed "big government" Democrats when they were in control. Now look who's been repealing Democratically promoted local control for the last 7 years? Check out the list here.


Upfront with Mike Gousha on the population leader:

If only Dane County's success could be replicated statewide, in even small ways:
Fourth Economy, which refers to the newest phase of economic investment nationwide that combines agrarian, industrial and technology, announced it selected Dane County for its Economy Community Index for Mega-Sized Counties for 2015. The report highlights “communities ideally positioned to attract modern investment and managed economic growth.” Dane County was ranked #2 in the top ten. 
Dane County is among the strongest counties in the U.S. in terms of increasing jobs in information technology and related sectors during the five years ending in 2012, according to a report published this month ... Identified as one of the ten best places to live in the United States for three consecutive years in a row by Money Magazine (2007-09). In addition, CNNMoney.com ranked us among the top 20 places to launch a business in the United States (2009). 

Home to the fastest growing population of any county in Wisconsin … consistently rank among the top communities for work and play.
Oh, and this...Dane County, which includes Madison and its technology spin-off industries, reported the state’s lowest jobless rate in April at 2.1%. Unemployment was worst across northern Wisconsin.
