Rep. Allen Votes Yes on Foxconn
Demographics and risk demand support
Rep. Allen released the following statement regarding his support for the Foxconn legislation:
Risk is inherent in business, and much of the debate I heard revolved around the risk of investing $3 billion over the next 15 years. Wisconsin is in the midst of experiencing an unprecedented demographics shift. We are losing a significant portion of graduates to other states and nations.
This will likely have a transformational effect for Wisconsin from the introduction of new technology and advanced manufacturing processes. The true risk would be in failing to act on this opportunity.
The 97th Assembly District includes portions of the City of Waukesha
and the Towns of Waukesha, Genesee, and Mukwonago.
