Never let it be said that Gov. Walker isn't responsive (though some have said that he gives too much credit to people who haven't earned it) when something goes wrong. Take the changes at the WEDC (via JSOnline):
One problem at the WEDC that drew headlines in recent weeks involved the information technology company Skyward of Stevens Point, which was bidding on a state contract to create a student-information system for Wisconsin.
The competitive bidding process had to be suspended and restarted by the Walker administration after it was discovered that the WEDC had offered Skyward tax credits if it won the contract. Skyward sells management software that's used by more than half of Wisconsin's 424 school districts, and it had been vocal about leaving the state if it didn't receive the award.
Jadin had previously said that his agency's attorney had signed off on the legality of the "soft offer." But Murray made clear that the Walker administration would not be repeating the maneuver because it had the appearance of violating the competitive bid.
In response, Gov. Walker makes a change and puts in a person who is, by all accounts, extremely smart and talented. Here's hoping it helps!
