This week, Kenosha was awarded $15 million in stimulus funds for the Kenosha Innovation Neighborhood and nearly $10 million for Kenosha County Health and Human Services operations. Also this week, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin ruled Wisconsin will be using Governor Evers’ proposed maps over the next ten years.
Representative Tod Ohnstad had the following statement:
“This has been a great week. Between the investments in Kenosha and the ruling on legislative maps, I couldn’t be happier.”
“Over the course of the 2021-2022 Legislative Session, Republicans have repeatedly worked to disenfranchise voters and attempt to make it harder to vote. While we are far from fair maps in Wisconsin, I’m pleased the Republicans attempt to undermine our democracy and cherry-pick their voters was blocked.”
“The investments in Kenosha are significant as we continue to work to grow our community economically. The Kenosha Innovation Neighborhood is focused on transforming the old Chrysler site into an economic hub for innovation. Kenosha will see opportunities for education, workforce training, and entrepreneurial development.”
“Kenosha County Health and Human Services do an excellent job at providing access to resources. The investment in their services is not just an investment to upgrade their facilities, it’s an investment in our veterans, senior citizens, and disabled and underserved communities. Both of these investments will sure serve Kenosha well in the future.”
