Representative Lisa Subeck Applauds Governor Evers’s Leadership in Unprecedented Times

MADISON – Today, in the first State of the State address of his new term, Governor Tony Evers reflected on his work over the past four years and shared his plans to invest in Wisconsin families and small businesses in the year to come. Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response:

“Tonight, Governor Evers shared his plan to lead Wisconsin with the empathy and wisdom that Wisconsinites have come to expect from him. He demonstrated that he is listening to the people of our state and will work hard to support and grow vibrant, healthy, and safe communities.

We are proud of the work we have done to get much needed resources to our schools and our children after a decade of disinvestment. By investing part of the state’s historic budget surplus in our public schools and permanently funding Governor Evers’s “Get Kids Ahead” initiative, we can ensure every child gets a quality education in a safe learning environment.

We will continue to support our small businesses with new investments in workforce, infrastructure, and the governor’s signature Main Street Bounceback Grants. Already, we have achieved record low unemployment, and thousands of new businesses have opened in our state. The governor’s plan builds on these successes.

To continue building an even stronger economy, we must ensure that every family has access to affordable, quality childcare. Governor Evers’s plan will do just that through child and dependent care tax credits, investments in the childcare workforce, and support for partnerships with employers and childcare providers.

Governor Evers has been a champion for working families since he first took office. I look forward to working together with him toward a stronger Wisconsin for all.”

Rep. Subeck has represented the 78th Assembly District since 2015 and serves as Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus.
