WAUSAU, WI – U.S. Representative Sean Duffy today laid out his vision for creating new jobs and keeping taxes low for hard-working families in North Central Wisconsin in a debate with his opponent held in Wausau.
The forum, held at the UW Marathon County Center for Civic Engagement and sponsored by the Daily Herald Media, the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy & Service, Wisconsin Public Radio and television stations from the area, highlighted the stark differences between Representative Duffy and his opponent, Kelly Westlund, on job creation, taxes and spending.
Representative Sean Duffy said the best way to grow and strengthen the middle class is to focus on job creation, reducing regulations and taxes, and empowering community banks and credit unions to provide much needed capital for local businesses and families to invest in their futures.
“Wisconsin wants to work. My first priority is to ensure we have an environment in which our main street businesses can grow and expand, and in turn provide new job opportunities for families. Good jobs make for stronger families and more vibrant communities, and I’ll continue to work my heart out to bolster economic growth and development right here in Wisconsin,” Representative Sean Duffy said. “My opponent’s big government agenda is straight out of a Democrat playbook. Our economy cannot afford the additional regulations, and massive tax and spend hikes my opponent wants to force on hard-working families and job creators.”
Representative Sean Duffy was first elected in 2010, and was re-elected by a wide margin in 2012.
