Former U.S. Congressman Mark Neumann, a Republican running for Governor in Wisconsin, has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). The Pledge is a commitment to the taxpayers of Wisconsin to “oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes.”
To date, seven state senators and 18 members of the Wisconsin State Assembly have signed the Pledge. Additionally, seven governors and over 1,100 state legislators across the country have signed the Pledge.
“Wisconsin residents need leaders committed to fiscal responsibility and economic policies that support the growth of business and the prosperity of the people. Mark Neumann was a Taxpayer Protection Pledge signer as a Member of Congress in the late 1990s, and I commend him for reaffirming his commitment to the taxpayers of Wisconsin as a candidate for Governor.,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.
“By signing the Pledge, Mark Neumann demonstrates that he understands the problems of hard-working taxpayers nationwide, but especially the taxpayers in Wisconsin.”
“I applaud Mark for his leadership and dedication to the ideals of limited government, as well as for putting the interest of the people ahead of the government’s desire for endless spending,” added Norquist. “I strongly encourage every candidate in Wisconsin and in elected offices throughout the country to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.”
