Evers to make 4th and final stop in Milwaukee for budget listening session
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Governor-elect Tony Evers wants to hear from Milwaukee residents on how they’d like your tax dollars to be spent.
He will be in the Cream City as part of his 4th and final stop for his budget brainstorming sessions.
Evers and Lt. Governor-elect Mandela Barnes have spent the last week crisscrossing the state for the sessions.
So far, their sessions in in Green Bay, Wausau and La Crosse have averaged at least a couple hundred people along with several local lawmakers.
During the session, participants will break out into groups to talk about their priorities and Evers and Barnes will make their way group to group to listen in.
Evers said many topics are on the table including transportation, education and health care.
He also said he wants to craft the budget with residents in mind.
“No expectations about the bottom line,” Evers said. “Our hope is to obviously keep taxes at a reasonable level and hopefully not raise them at all, but there's lots of needs out there.”
Unfortunately the event in Milwaukee has already filled up, but Evers encourage everyone to leave their comments online, by clicking here.
Evers is also expected to make some cabinet announcements Wednesday.
