A written transcript of the address is below:

“Hi, I’m State Senator Jennifer Shilling.

“While we’ve seen strong national growth over the past few years, Republican policies have cut school funding, delayed road projects, and threatened healthcare coverage for millions of people with preexisting conditions.

“Wisconsin families are working harder than ever but can’t get ahead because Republicans continue to favor the wealthy and foreign corporations. Gov. Walker and legislative Republicans are draining resources from our schools, roads and local communities in order to fund $4.5 billion in taxpayer subsidies to Foxconn.

“Democrats want to expand access to affordable health care, invest in infrastructure and improve workplace flexibility for hardworking Wisconsin families. Together, we can address the sky-rocketing costs of childcare, expand the family medical leave act, protect coverage for people with preexisting conditions, and invest in our local schools.

“I know we can do better. If we want to grow our middle class and help our next generation succeed, we need Democratic leadership to move Wisconsin forward.

Thank you.”
