MADISON – Representative Melissa Sargent (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ State of the State Address this evening:
“It is refreshing to hear that our Governor is listening to the people of Wisconsin, and is eager to work hard to find common sense solutions for our friends and neighbors all across our great state. His words certainly ring true – ‘what is best for our kids is best for our state’. This is the foresight that our state needs to move forward, and to ensure that Wisconsin is a place where every child thrives.
From fighting for affordable and quality healthcare for all, to fully funding our public schools, standing up for our working families, and addressing egregious racial disparities in our state, Governor Evers is committed to getting things done and improving the lives of Wisconsinites.
While Governor Evers knows that there are significant challenges facing our state, he also knows that it is time to roll-up our sleeves, get to work, and to get things done for the people of Wisconsin. I look forward to working with the Evers Administration and my colleagues in the legislature in order to find common sense solutions that make our state work for everyone.”
