“Hi, this is State Senator LaTonya Johnson.
“As the Wisconsin Legislature moves forward in the state budget process, it is important that our elected leaders have an open dialogue with residents and families across the state.
“Governor Tony Evers’ budget is about creating a Wisconsin that works for everyone – a Wisconsin for us. It prioritizes investments in healthcare, education, infrastructure, good government, criminal justice reform, and a clean environment.
“In order to provide greater opportunities for residents like you to learn about the budget and share your thoughts on the Governor’s budget proposal, the Joint Committee on Finance is hosting listening sessions throughout the state starting this week. As a State Senate Democratic member of the Joint Committee on Finance I hope you’ll share your thoughts with us and make your voice heard.
“Wisconsin Democrats remain committed to funding our public schools, developing policies that build strong family supporting jobs and finding a way, and a long-term solution to our state’s transportation crisis.
“As we move forward in the budget process it is important for citizens to weigh in and say what is important to them. Please contact you legislator and make your state budget priorities heard.”
