- Seaholm will rally support for Gov. Scott Walker’s budget reform plan-

MILWAUKEE- As Americans for Prosperity continues to rally support for Governor Scott Walker’s common sense reform to tackle the state’s nearly $4 billion deficit, AFP-Wisconsin welcomes Matt Seaholm, Chippewa Falls native and political veteran, as the new Wisconsin state director.

Americans for Prosperity helped coordinate the “Stand With Walker” rally in Madison last Saturday where nearly 10,000 activists gathered in support of Gov. Scott Walker.

“Seaholm is a political operative who has played an influential role in Wisconsin’s conservative turnaround,” said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity. “We’re proud that he will be the one to lead Wisconsin through this crucial budget battle.”

Seaholm will hit the ground running as director of AFP-Wisconsin with statewide TV and radio ads starting this week, along with events in Eagle River, Green Bay, and Kenosha, urging state senators to return home and support the Governor’s budget reform plan.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Seaholm most recently served as Congressman Sean Duffy’s Chief of Staff in Washington after having served as his campaign manager in Duffy’s successful bid for Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional Seat. Prior to that, Seaholm worked for Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald in Madison as a policy advisor.

During the 2008 campaign, he was Deputy Director of the Republican Assembly Campaign Committee under then-Speaker of the Assembly Mike Huebsch. Seaholm got his start in Wisconsin politics by working for now-State Senator Terry Moulton when he served in the State Assembly.

“In 2010, voters of Wisconsin rejected the notion that bigger government is better,” said Seaholm. “But you don’t get Wisconsin growing again by winning elections; you do it through important and necessary public policy changes. Now it’s time to organize AFP activists to ensure the governor and legislature rein in wasteful spending and get a hold of the state’s unsustainable budget.”
