Ron talked with the Wall Street Journal about the Joseph Project – a community initiative that’s helping connect folks with good jobs, and how the compassion of community can make a real difference in people’s lives.

Below is an excerpt and you can read the full story here.

“The senator and former plastics-making executive isn’t one to put an extra brush of varnish on a situation. Yet in an interview at his campaign headquarters in Waukesha, he says the Joseph Project is far more meaningful than mere politics: ‘It is a joy, being able to participate in that, seeing people’s lives be turned around. That’s true conservative values and they work. You outsource compassion to the federal government, that doesn’t work so good. You show your compassion here in your community, one person at a time.’”
