For Immediate Release: January 13, 2015

Contact: Senator Janis Ringhand, (608) 266-2253

Statement of State Senator Janis Ringhand (D-Evansville) Regarding the State of the State address:

“Generations of Wisconsinites have grown up knowing that if you work hard and play by the rules, the future will be prosperous.

Today, Wisconsin is at a crossroads. Will we continue down the path of divisive politics or can we create opportunity by rewarding those who work hard and play by the rules?

The upcoming months will indicate whether the Governor is focused on creating economic opportunity for all of Wisconsin’s working families or merely political opportunity for himself.

I look forward to working together with my Senate colleagues to create economic opportunities for everyone in Wisconsin to succeed.”
