MADISON – State Representative Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) was appointed yesterday to the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development (WHEDA) Board by the Assembly Democratic Leader.

In response to his appointment, Rep. Goyke stated:

“I am honored to serve on the WHEDA Board and I thank my legislative leadership for this opportunity to serve my constituents in an added capacity.

Six years ago I bought a historic home that was empty and facing foreclosure. My wife Gaby and I have put our blood, sweat, and tears into bringing our home back to life. This same story is seen throughout the 18th Assembly District.

Housing matters. Quality housing, whether rented or owned, brings stabilization and a stronger community. I look forward to the opportunity to promote access to quality housing for all Wisconsinites.

WHEDA, and its programs, have had a significant positive impact on the 18th Assembly District and the City of Milwaukee. I look forward to working with WHEDA Executive Director Wyman Winston, my fellow Board members, and WHEDA staff to help fulfill our shared priorities and goals. I’m ready to get to work.”

Rep. Goyke will attend his first Board meeting in Madison tomorrow.
