Gov. Walker takes calls from around the state in town hall

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker took questions from callers around the state Wednesday night in a town hall session.

He touched on a number of topics and highlighted what he calls successes this year.

The governor said we have more people employed than ever before, tens of millions of dollars has been added for grants to increase broadband access, especially in rural areas and he said property taxes on a median value home have gone down.

"It's $116 less on a median valued home in the state of Wisconsin this year than it was six years ago, December before we took office. And that means over the last six years the total savings has been over $400, $426 on a median valued home," he says.

The governor was also asked about the future of Wisconsin under a Donald Trump administration.

He said he's hoping more responsibility and resources will be moved from the federal government to the states, to give them more power.
