Governor Scott Walker says the state’s business climate is improving. He made an appearance at a Vilas County Economic Development meeting Monday at Eagle Waters Resort.
Speaking to a crowd of business people and local officials, Walker said good things are happening in Wisconsin, and noted 13,000 new businesses have been created since he took office. Walker also talked about his Walleye Initiative, which resonated with Dick Mendham, owner of Sunset Resort near Phelps:
Officials helping start-up businesses around the state are meeting up in Vilas County next week. Vilas County Economic Development Corporation is hosting the quarterly meeting of the state’s Business Incubation Association Board.

“And by having these folks here – we consider it a privilege but at the same time it will allow us to draw on their expertise, and help us proceed in being successful.”
