MADISON, Wis. – Senator Duey Stroebel (R – Cedarburg) released the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ Second Inaugural Address:
“It comes as no surprise that Governor Evers devoted much of his inaugural address to advancing the erroneous idea that Wisconsin voters provided him with a sweeping mandate to push through a laundry list of partisan ideas that emanate from Madison and Milwaukee. He conveniently glosses over the fact that Wisconsinites voted to return stronger Republican majorities to both houses of the Legislature.”
“Governor Evers’ calls for bipartisanship and unity will ring hollow if he insists on defining ‘bipartisan’ as the garden variety liberal agenda. It becomes even more difficult to ‘forge forward, together’ when those who do not share his liberal political ideology are caricatured as threats to both democracy and the ‘tenets and institutions’ of our constitutional republic.”
“I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of my constituents to ensure that Wisconsin does not reverse course on key reforms while considering genuine bipartisan agreement where it might be reached.”
Senator Stroebel represents the 20th Senate District, which includes parts of Ozaukee, Washington, Fond du Lac, Calumet and Sheboygan Counties.
