MADISON — Rep. Jonathan Brostoff (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement on Governor Tony Evers’ inaugural State of the State address:

“It was truly a breath of fresh air to hear Governor Evers speak tonight of a vision for Wisconsin that will consider the needs of our neighbors and communities over ransom-style demands for corporate welfare handouts and legislative favors paid to a handful of major Republican campaign donors. After the failed “leadership” our state saw over the past eight years, it was encouraging to hear plans that would expand and properly fund public services instead of carelessly cutting them without regard for where the pieces will land.

“Governor Evers made it clear that he will prioritize increasing access to affordable health care and returning us to the days of fully investing in our schools. His plan will strengthen the state of our state.

“I genuinely look forward to working with Governor Evers and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to advance a new pro-Wisconsin agenda. Finally, Wisconsin is open for the people.”
