wisc-capitol-dome"I look forward to working with Governor Evers to advance common-sense policies that reflect our shared Wisconsin values,” says new Representative Staush Gruszynski of Green Bay.


MADISON – State Representative Staush Gruszynski (D-Green Bay) expressed his support for Governor Evers proposed 2019-2021 State Budget priorities after the Governor’s budget address at the State Capitol on Thursday evening.

staush-gruszynski“Tonight, Governor Evers shared his vision for a Wisconsin that works for everyone, a Wisconsin for all of us. Like the Governor, I strongly support putting politics aside so that we can work together to address the pressing issues facing our state,” Gruszynski said. “Whether it is the Governor’s commitment to reinvesting in our public K-12 schools and the University of Wisconsin system, his goal of ensuring that everyone in our state can drink clean water from their tap, or his plan to expand Medicaid to provide affordable, high-quality healthcare to more Wisconsinites, it’s safe to say that it’s a new day in Wisconsin. I look forward to working with Governor Evers to advance common-sense policies that reflect our shared Wisconsin values.”

MADISON – On Tuesday, Governor Evers announced that his biennial budget will include a nonpartisan redistricting process. Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement in support of the Governor’s plan:

gordon_hintz“I’m thrilled that Governor Evers has made non-partisan redistricting reform a priority by including it in his state budget proposal. In 2011, Assembly and Senate Republicans drew maps in secret with a partisan advantage of 64-35 seats in the State Assembly. And for the past eight years, lawmakers have pushed through laws and policies that are out of line with the majority of Wisconsinites. When politicians pick their voters instead of the other way around, they are insulated from the accountability required in a democracy.

“There is a myth perpetuated by my Republican colleagues that voters choose divided government in Wisconsin in the 2018 election. This claim is directly contradicted by the fact that in a massive Democratic election cycle where five Democrats swept statewide races, Governor Evers simultaneously won only 36 Assembly seats. By design, these gerrymandered maps assure Republican control of the Assembly whether it is a Democratic or a Republican election year.

“Competitive elections bring accountability. The very reason Republicans can ram through laws during a lame duck session that undermine the future powers of a democratically elected Governor and Attorney General is because they are insulated from any realistic backlash from voters.”
