MADISON, Wis. — For Governor Evers’ annual State of the State Address, Assembly Democrats invited front line workers as their guests of honor. Assembly Democratic Leader Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement:
“I am so excited to be back in the Assembly chamber this evening to hear Governor Evers deliver the annual State of the State address. It hasn’t been easy, but thanks to Governor Evers’ sound leadership, Wisconsin is bouncing back from the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to hearing from Governor Evers tonight about the state of Wisconsin and what he’s done to put us in the best position for the year ahead.
“Governor Evers isn’t the only one we have to thank for getting us to where we are today. Thanks to thousands of healthcare workers, first responders, teachers, grocery workers and others across the state, Wisconsin is moving forward. We’ve made it to 2022 with record low unemployment, the largest projected surplus in state history, and even more accomplishments on the horizon. To thank them for their tireless service, Assembly Democrats have invited frontline workers to Governor Evers’ address to show our appreciation for all the hard work they do for our state,” said Rep. Neubauer.
“The last two years have been incredibly difficult, but I am so glad and thankful to be here tonight,” said Pat Reas, nurse and President of SEIU Healthcare Wisconsin. “Thanks to Governor Evers, we’ve had the resources we need to make sure that we could provide the necessary care Wisconsinites needed throughout the pandemic.”
“Not only did Governor Evers make sure that we could keep doing our job despite unprecedented circumstances, but he prioritized me and my coworkers’ well-being to make sure that we could continue to support our students,” said Angela Bazan, a high school teacher.
“It’s thanks to Governor Evers that we’ve been able to help as many Wisconsinites as we have. Without his distributions of federal funds and steadfast leadership, we wouldn’t be anywhere near as successful in saving lives as where we are today. I look forward to hearing what he has to say tonight,” said Andrea Romer, UW – Health Nurse.
