On the Issues: Mark Hogan

It’s being billed as the largest economic development project in state history. So how did Wisconsin land Foxconn? What will it mean for the region and the state? And what are the risks and rewards of the deal? In this visit to the Lubar Center, WEDC Secretary Mark Hogan will offer his unique perspective on the Foxconn project. Hogan played a key role in the Foxconn negotiations. He and Governor Walker see the deal as transformational, a project that will create thousands of jobs and a new electronics ecosystem in the state. But the Foxconn project is not without its critics, who say the state paid too high a price to persuade the Taiwanese tech giant to locate here. We’ll talk about it all, including what happens next with the project, when WEDC Secretary Hogan joins us.
