MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin is today announcing the hire of Eric Bott as the new state director for the Wisconsin Chapter. Bott brings more than 10 years of Wisconsin legislative and grassroots organizing experience. He takes the reigns of the chapter as the previous state director, David Fladeboe, moves up to head innovation and strategy for the national organization.

“I am excited to continue the good work Americans for Prosperity has laid out in the Badger State,” Bott said. Wisconsin has certainly come a long way in the last few years, passing Right-To-Work, stopping million dollar deficits, and enacting common sense reforms to save taxpayers millions. I look forward to continuing that great work as together we work to repeal Prevailing Wage and move the state of Wisconsin forward.”

Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips also issued the following statement:

“Eric Bott has dedicated his career to advancing economic freedom that helps people from all walks of life live prosperously.  He’s the right leader to continue the legacy Americans For Prosperity has built in Wisconsin. Under Eric’s leadership, AFP Wisconsin is in good hands.”

A copy of Eric’s bio is available here.

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is a nationwide organization of citizen-leaders committed to advancing every individual’s right to economic freedom and opportunity. AFP believes reducing the size and intrusiveness of government is the best way to promote individual productivity and prosperity for all Americans.
