Madison, WI – The Wisconsin Economic Development Association (WEDA) recently presented Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee) with the 2018 “Champion of Economic Development” Award for his support of policies to drive economic growth and prosperity in Wisconsin.

“Representative Neylon made it a priority to support policies that promote economic activity, business growth and job creation for communities across Wisconsin,” said Michael Welsh, WEDA Legislative Affairs Director. “We appreciate his dedication to these key issues and look forward to working with him in the future.”

    The most corrupt government agency in Wisconsin history.! Millions unaccounted for, no documentation of economic activity or jobs, given to corrupt cronies and for political favors. This is just one of Walker’s corrupt legacies. https://www.wpr.org/wisconsin-lawmakers-discuss-wedc-audit. No wonder Walker is running scared of a blue wave that is coming.
