Walker never got tax break letter
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's administration says the governor never received a March 22 letter offering tax incentives to a Wisconsin company if it won a $15 million contract, even though his office was copied in on the correspondence.
Walker's Department of Administration spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster tells The Associated Press the governor never received the letter from Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation head Paul Jadin.
In the letter to Stevens Point-based Skyward, Jadin says he and the governor were "firmly committed to doing everything possible" to award the incentives.
Jadin rescinded the offer on June 18 after Walker's legal office raised concerns as bids were still being accepted to run the statewide information system.
Webster says from now on all letters from WEDC copying in the governor will actually be sent to him.
