MADISON – This evening, Governor Tony Evers made his 2023 State of the State speech in the Assembly Chambers of the Wisconsin State Capitol. In his speech, Governor Evers went into great detail about his plan for Wisconsin across a host of issue areas; naming 2023 the Year of Mental Health and announcing his investment of roughly $500 million to expand access to mental health services for Wisconsinites, as well as highlighting his bold Clean Energy Plan.
State Representative Supreme Moore Omokunde was in attendance tonight and offered his thoughts on the Governor’s speech:
“I really appreciate Governor Evers going so deeply into his plan during this evening’s State of the State address, particularly on the topics of mental health and climate justice. 2023 is the Year of Mental Health and I applaud the Governor for standing up to address Wisconsin’s mental health needs,” stated Representative Moore Omokunde (D-Milwaukee). “Additionally, I’ve always appreciated Governor Evers for his bold stance on Climate Justice. Today, he took it to the next level by announcing his investment of $10 million into expanding clean energy job training and reemployment for folks joining our clean energy workforce. I look forward to helping him see it through!”
Representative Moore Omokunde represents the 17th Assembly District on the North and Northwest sides of Milwaukee.
