MADISON, WISCONSIN – To recognize state elected officials who play an
integral role in helping Wisconsinites and all Americans to save and retire with
confidence, AARP today announces that Governor Tony Evers and State
Treasurer Sarah Godlewski have been named to AARP’s 2019 national class of
Super Savers – which includes 18 elected officials in eight states.
The governor and treasurer received their awards from AARP Wisconsin during a
presentation today in the Governor’s conference room at the State Capitol.
“In 2019, Governor Evers created the Governor’s Task Force on Retirement
Security, which is charged with developing solutions to help hardworking
Wisconsinites save for retirement,” said AARP Wisconsin State Director Sam
“Chaired by Treasurer Godlewski, the task force will help Wisconsin workers
grow retirement savings so they can take control of their own future. AARP
thanks the governor and treasurer for creating and spearheading this important
task force.”
Wilson said both the governor and treasurer showed bold and visionary
leadership not only by understanding the importance of this issue, but by
appointing knowledgeable members to this task force who are exploring many
ways Wisconsin can help its residents better prepare for their financial future.
“In 2020 and beyond, AARP will continue to work with Wisconsin’s elected
officials, business leaders, and community stakeholders to expand opportunities
for Wisconsinites to grow the personal savings they need to take control of their
finances as they age.”

AARP created the Super Saver awards to recognize state elected officials who
are focused on issues that Americans face in their daily lives. There are nearly

“These are hardworking folks who should be able to retire and live independently
as they age,” Wilson said. “The governor and treasurer are champions for
Wisconsinites and we applaud their bold leadership to make savings easier for all
