MADISON – Governor Tony Evers just concluded his first State of the State in his second term in office. In his address, the Governor pointed to his plan to bolster Wisconsin’s economy and improve our education system.
Representative Kristina Shelton (D-90, Green Bay) and Representative Lee Snodgrass (D-57, Appleton) released the following reactions to the Governor’s address:
“Wisconsin is strong. We are ready to meet challenges with diligence and compassion under his leadership,” Representative Shelton remarked. “In his address, the Governor showcased his commitment to the people of Wisconsin and offered the legislature the chance to make significant investments in working people, the environment, small businesses, and local economies. From investing in public schools to addressing PFAS contamination to growing mental health support – Wisconsin communities are begging us to take bold action on critical issues. We have a chance. Let’s not waste it.”
“Governor Evers has a proven track record of investment in the people of Wisconsin whether it be through funding public education, supporting job growth, protecting the environment, or making sure our state’s youngest and oldest residents’ needs are being met. Tonight he showed us, over the next four years he will continue to put the people of Wisconsin first.” Representative Snodgrass continued, “As a member of the Children & Families Committee, I especially look forward to supporting the Governor’s efforts in addressing the mental health and child care crisis facing the state. We have accomplished much these past four years and with historic surplus funds available, these next four years have the power to be transformative.”
