Governor-elect Tony Evers Attending National Governors Association Meeting

MADISON – Governor-elect Tony Evers will attend the National Governors Association Seminar for New Governors in Colorado this weekend with his wife, Kathy Evers. A bipartisan group of current governors from around the nation and their staff will provide training and advice for newly-elected governors of both parties on issues ranging from emergency preparedness to work-life balance.
“I’ve spent my career working across the aisle so I’m excited to join a diverse group of new governors and learn from a bipartisan set of our nation’s current governors,” said Evers. “I’m looking forward to talking with governors across the country about how we can work together on critically important issues like Medicaid expansion, attracting new businesses with infrastructure investments, and protecting our natural resources.”
Evers is part of a large class of new Democratic governors setting up their administration. Democratic gains in the Midwest helped bring the largest pickup in 36 years with seven gubernatorial elections switching control to Democrats. New Republican governors also elected earlier this month will join them this weekend at the seminar.
“I promised to remain focused on solving the problems facing our state and listening to other governors from both parties during the transition will help us be ready to get things done on Day One of my administration,” said Evers.
