MADISON – After Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling announced the appointment of Senator LaTonya Johnson as a member of the Joint Finance Committee, Senator Johnson released the following statement:

“It is an incredible honor and privilege to be appointed to the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee. Representing Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin is a commitment I take very seriously. It is critical that all of our children have an equal opportunity to succeed, and that means fighting to rebuild and strengthen the ladders of success that lift up families and communities. Wisconsin’s history shows us that prosperity does not trickle down – it grows out of a thriving middle class supported by family-sustaining jobs, affordable health care, a financially secure retirement, and a continued investment in our children’s education.

“As a state senator, I have a proven record of being able to work with my colleagues, on both sides of the aisle, to make positive changes for communities across the state. I believe this appointment is a vital next step for me to ensure both Milwaukee and our state are prosperous and can thrive.”
