John Gard wants Mark Neumann to be Wisconsin’s next governor.
The former state Assembly Speaker is a co-chair of Neumann’s gubernatorial campaign. Gard says he’s got a lot of respect for his former Assembly colleague and current Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker — who’ll face Neumann in the primary election — but Gard believes Neumann is best suited to be the state’s chief executive.
“I believe Mark Neumann is in the best position to lead the state forward and also the best position to defeat Tom Barrett.”
Gard’s wife also co-chairs the Neumann campaign. Cate Zeuske (zy’-skee) says, as former state treasurer, she’s very concerned about the state of the state.
“The economic foundation is starting to crumble.”
Zueske says as a businessman, Neumann has proven that he knows how to run a business and can create the jobs our state desperately needs.
The Republican duo from Peshtigo says this decision wasn’t made lightly. They put a lot of “prayer, thought and energy” into their decision to support Neumann. Gard says, “Nobody has sacrificed or given more than the Neumanns.”
