Representative LaKeshia Myers made the following statement regarding Judge Niess’ ruling involving the extraordinary session:

(MADISON) – “Judge Niess’ ruling today upholds what the Wisconsin electorate expects, which is equity in government. Today’s ruling is a win for the people of Wisconsin; it reaffirms that one party cannot act as a dictatorship over the other. We must act in earnest, with a spirit of compromise and that compromise begins with republican members acceptance that the people of Wisconsin elected Tony Evers governor. As such, Governor Evers should have been afforded the same opportunities to govern as those who preceded him, this was not the case. But on today, I am thankful that judicial solvency was given to the aggrieved. I am certain Governor Evers will make the most of his opportunity to fully govern our state and make appointments that are indicative of the diversity represented across the state of Wisconsin.”
