Sturgeon Bay – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin is announcing the launch of a grassroots issue education campaign in Door and Kewaunee Counties. AFP volunteers are talking with citizens about the benefits of pro-growth reforms passed by Rep. Joel Kitchens and encouraging him to do more in the future. The organization’s volunteers made more than 2,500 voter contacts on just the first day of the new campaign.

“Legislative reforms targeted at helping working families and small businesses are working in Wisconsin but the media doesn’t always tell the story,” said Americans for Prosperity state director Eric Bott. “Our volunteers are connecting with people one-on-one and sharing the positive story of Wisconsin’s economic comeback.”

Bott says Rep. Kitchens’ votes to reduce taxes on working families and small businesses are helping to improve the economic climate in Wisconsin. He cites a recent announcement from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development that Wisconsin had its best 12-month private sector job growth since 2004 earlier this spring and data from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue indicating that state revenues were up 4% during the first quarter of the year.

“Legislators like Joel Kitchens are helping to create an economic climate that facilitates both job and revenue growth,” said Bott. “That means more jobs for workers and more money for schools. We should encourage the legislature to keep up the great work.”
