MADISON- Today Rep. Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) was recognized by the Wisconsin Property Taxpayers, Inc. as a 2017 Property Taxpayer Champion. This award was given in recognition of important legislation Rep. Goyke is championing regarding needed reforms to the sale of properties at Sheriff Sale, as well as legislation to grow Wisconsin’s agriculture workforce with veterans.
Following receipt of the award Rep. Goyke stated:
“I extend my thanks to the Wisconsin Property Taxpayers, Inc. and their members for this great honor. I greatly appreciate their support and advocacy for the bi-partisan pieces of legislation I have worked so hard on.
The 18th Assembly District is home to a vibrant and diverse community. When Milwaukee wins – Wisconsin wins. By introducing and advocating for legislation to grow our workforce, and to make the sale of properties more transparent and accessible, my community and the State of Wisconsin benefit. When property is productive-whether a farm or a formerly foreclosed home – property taxpayers in Wisconsin win.”
The award was presented this morning in Madison alongside fellow legislative colleagues and advocates.
