Majority Leader Fitzgerald Acknowledges Evers’ Statements on Schools
[Madison, WI] — Republicans in Wisconsin have been pressuring Governor Tony Evers to not block in-person instruction at schools that choose to move forward with that option this fall. In an interview, Governor Evers told reporters that he had no plans to mandate virtual learning for the upcoming school year. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement in response:
“I appreciate the governor’s statements that support in-person instruction, but actions speak louder than words. Earlier this spring, the governor flip-flopped on whether to issue a stay-at-home order. He flip-flopped on whether to move the April 7th Election. I’m fearful that he will cave to pressures from liberal groups and backtrack once again.
“The fight isn’t over yet, and legislators will remain vigilant. I would urge citizens of Wisconsin who support in-person instruction to keep the pressure on the governor.”
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.
