MONTGOMERY – Alabama Governor Robert Bentley on Wednesday publicly congratulated Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker following Walker’s historic victory in Wisconsin’s recall election.
“Governor Walker is a man of conviction who has the courage to make tough decisions and the wisdom to understand that government must live within its means,” Governor Bentley said. “I congratulate Governor Walker on his victory. This is a clear reminder that voters support a government that is streamlined, efficient, and not controlled by special interests.”
“I stand with Governor Walker and his fight for fiscal responsibility,” Governor Bentley added. “It is up to us as leaders to make sound decisions, even if they might be difficult, in order to guide our states through challenging financial times. By making decisions that reduce unnecessary spending and increase government efficiency, we are putting our states in better financial positions for the long term while also living within our means.”
