State Investment in Sherman Park and Milwaukee A First Step In Right Direction – Calls for Sustained Commitment
“...but it is only the first step.”
MILWAUKEE – State Representative Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement regarding the State of Wisconsin’s announcement today of $4.5 million in state funds now committed to Milwaukee:
“Today’s announcement of a $4.5 million dollar financial commitment to Milwaukee by the State of Wisconsin is a step in the right direction – but it is only the first step.”
“As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel stated today – these funds are ‘…a down payment, not a transformation.’ For many years and decades employment opportunities, resources, and hope for many of my neighbors slowly left Milwaukee. It will take time, but this I can promise – Milwaukee is coming back and moving forward.”
“I thank the State of Wisconsin for its investment today in the community I represent. I look forward to working with my legislative colleagues, leadership of both parties, and the Administration on a continued and sustained commitment that will have a lasting impact for generations on my fellow community members and the city that I call home.”
