GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - The recall election was focused on jobs and the people creating them.
Last week Local 5 told you about a survey of Northeast Wisconsin business owners.
A majority of them said a win for walker was positive for business.
"I would like to see it simmer down" says Allan Zeise "But I would also like to see them working together again, start healing the wounds".
Zeise, a Green Bay business owner is happy to have the recall election in the rearview mirror.
"They have been a distraction. Everything has been oh let's get re-elected or let's get our guy in" says Zeise.
His company "ZyQuest" develops software and provides IT services.
Business took a dip during the recall process.
"I believe that it has hurt the state. It has set us back. I think companies that are looking to do business in Wisconsin [were] waiting for the outcome" he explains.
Gamers may also recognize ZyQuest's work. Developers have had a hand in popular games like "Call of Duty".
"There is a lot of talent" Zeise says. "A lot of good ideas we can compete with anybody, anywhere, anytime. With the right climate we'll be able to take advantage and use that talent".
Zeise believes keeping Scott Walker in office is a step in the right direction. "As they change the taxation where Wisconsin isn't known as one of the worst taxation states and one of the worst states to do business in, that's changing".
While the recall answers some questions the looming presidential election still weighs heavy for small business.
"Healthcare is a big issue for small business and they still don't know where they stand" says E-hub executive director Mark Burwell.
However, he says the state turmoil has not slowed down the number of graduates coming to E-hub for entrepreneur training.
In fact the program launched its 800th business in the midst of the recall.
Burwell says now that the election is done business owners want action. "I think they're still unsure. I think talk is cheap, they want to see things happen and not just talk".
