Why was Walker named Governor of Year?
As 2011 ended, United Wisconsin was closing in on the signatures needed to trigger a recall of Gov. Scott Walker. No doubt, it mattered little to his critics and the union-led recall drive that Walker was named Governor of the Year.
Governors Journal gave Walker that little-publicized honor.
The recognition, without question, will confound his critics.
Walker, Governors Journal explained in a website story announcing the selection Dec. 23, “served as the embodiment of the state-by-state battle to balance budgets and the best symbol of the struggle between the two political parties about how best to meet those fiscal challenges.”
Does Governors Journal provide reasonable justification for giving this honor to the Republican Walker? Is the honor no big deal?
We’ll share our perspectives in our editorial Wednesday.
