Governor Scott Walker released the following statement today wishing Wisconsin fathers a very happy Father’s Day:

Today on Father’s Day, we thank all of Wisconsin’s dads for their strength, encouragement, and support. Through our fathers, we learn right from wrong, how to stand up for what we believe in, and the importance of always pursuing our dreams.

Today, and every day, I’d like to thank Wisconsin’s dads for serving as strong role models for their sons and daughters, and for shaping their children, families, and communities.

Thank you to my father Llew Walker for serving as that role model for me and my brother David. Being a father to Matt and Alex is a joy and responsibility I have cherished. So, from one father to another, I wish the dads of Wisconsin a very happy Father’s Day.

Governor Walker also issued a proclamation declaring today as Father’s Day throughout the state. A copy of his proclamation is attached.
