KENOSHA – Today, Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Sara Rodriguez joined Rep. Tip McGuire and community members in Kenosha today to get a first-hand look at the city’s economic progress, as well as a local healthcare facility.
The Lt. Governor visited BLAK Coffee in downtown Kenosha and Antou Beauty Town, which is located on Roosevelt Road. Both businesses received Main Street Bounceback Grants through the Evers administration’s efforts to support local small businesses that were impacted during the pandemic.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. Thanks to the Main Street Bounceback grants, many of our local businesses not only survived COVID-19, but are thriving today,” said Rep. Tip McGuire.
The Lt. Governor then toured Brookside Care Center, a long-term care facility in Kenosha which has consistently been named one of the best facilities in the state.
“As a former healthcare worker, the work that Brookside is doing is near and dear to me. Having quality long-term care is absolutely essential for our state, and I am glad to have an opportunity to listen and learn at a facility that has been providing top-tier care for years,” said Lieutenant Governor Sara Rodriguez.
“Despite all of the hurdles of the pandemic, we are so proud of the work that our staff has done to continue to provide great care here at Brookside and Willowbrook,” said administrator Lynda Bogdala, “It was an honor to host LG Rodriguez and we are thankful for her recognition of the dedication and perseverance of our healthcare workers.”
