Contact: Rep. Sondy Pope

MADISON, Wis. – This evening Governor Tony Evers delivered the annual State of the State address after serving his first year in office. Governor Evers shared his vision for the future of Wisconsin, influenced by listening to citizens across the state. The governor highlighted the need for additional efforts in education, environmental protection, and the preservation of our democracy. In response, Representative Sondy Pope (D-Mt. Horeb) released the following statement:

“I am proud to stand with a governor who genuinely cares for the people he serves. Over the past year, Governor Evers has put politics aside and has offered ideas that will improve the lives of ordinary citizens. His initiatives, focused on tackling the student debt crisis, improving water quality, and improving public health, demonstrate common priorities with Wisconsinites across the state.”

“As mentioned in the address, the vaping epidemic is a serious threat to public health. I am thrilled to be working with the governor to face this problem head on, specifically within our schools. Student health is directly correlated to student success, and it is my hope that our commonsense proposal to ban vaping on school premises makes our students safer, healthier, and more successful. I call on my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to do what’s right for our kids, and get this bill to Governor Evers’ desk.”

“The governor’s ability to take action on pressing issues with vigor and urgency is why he was elected by the citizens of Wisconsin. I applaud the path and direction he has set for our state and look forward to continuing the work to advance an agenda that work for the people.”
