Audio File of Radio Address

lakeshia-myersHello, this is Representative LaKeshia Myers with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

I'm here to remind you that the Spring General Election is on Tuesday, April 2nd.

There's something powerful about voting.

When we vote, we decide the future direction of our state.

I am asking that you not take that powerful tool for granted.

In order to make your voice heard, it is important to be aware of how, when, and what you’ll need to vote.

First, make sure you're registered.

You can check myvote.wi.gov to see if you’re currently registered, if not, you can register at your local clerk’s office during business hours or at your polling place on Election Day.

Second, you need to make sure you have the proper ID needed to vote.

Go to bringitwisconsin.com to find out the acceptable forms of identification.

If you need a free ID to vote - take proof of identity, proof of residency, proof of citizenship, and social security card to your local DMV.

And finally, polls are open from 7:00am to 8:00pm. So make a plan for “how” and “when” you will get to vote.

Your vote is your voice. Make sure you are heard on Tuesday, April 2nd. Don’t forget to vote.

health_care_dayMADISON, WI – Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton) offered the Democratic weekly radio address highlighting the benefits of Governor Evers’ plan to accept the federal funds available to expand Medicaid for 82,000 people in Wisconsin. 

The audio file of this week’s address can be found here:

jon-erpenbachA written transcript of the address is below: 

“Hi, this is state Senator Jon Erpenbach.

“Governor Evers is proposing a Medicaid Expansion in his state budget that will provide 82,000 Wisconsinites with quality affordable health care while saving the state 300 million dollars.

“Expanded Medicaid, and that money, means:

·         We can lower the cost of prescription drugs.

·         We can increase the reimbursement rates to nursing homes who are closing their doors around the state.

·         We can eliminate the waiting list for the children’s long term support program.

·         We can also properly address the opioid and meth epidemic in Wisconsin.

·         And, we can expand and create programs focused on tobacco prevention, dental initiatives, and infant mortality prevention.

“For our communities this is not a partisan issue. A recent Marquette poll shows that accepting federal Medicaid expansion is support by 62 percent of Wisconsinites, yet Republicans ignore their wishes – that means we’ve missed out on 1.1 billion dollars so far.

“It is time for Wisconsin to join 37 others states in accepting the Medicaid expansion and putting Wisconsinites first.”
