MADISON, Wis. — The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Program Director Analiese Eicher regarding Gov. Tony Evers’ State of the State speech:
“Gov. Evers campaigned on real solutions for real people on the issues like education, health care and transportation. The people of Wisconsin responded by electing him Governor.
“In his address to the legislature tonight Gov. Evers showed he’s delivering on what he promised and is sincerely focused on what’s best for our state.
“It’s a new day in Wisconsin and Republicans in control of the state legislature need to respect and accept the decisions of the voters. Their leaders Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald can either join in moving us forward or continue to stand in the way of progress as they seek personal political advantage.
“By working together we can make sure our Wisconsin government works for everyone — delivering great public schools, safe and reliable transportation, affordable and accessible health care and an economy that leaves no one behind.”
