david-bowenRep. David Bowen (D-Milwaukee) says Citizens of Wisconsin support Governor Evers’ proposals.


MILWAUKEE - Rep. David Bowen (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement regarding the recent Marquette University Law Poll that shows bi-partisan support for Governor Evers' agenda: “Just days after Governor Evers’ first State of the State address, a new Marquette University poll shows just how enthusiastic the people of Wisconsin are for the change that Governor Evers promised.

“This poll shows wide voter support for raising the minimum wage, funding public schools, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, non-partisan redistricting, and releasing prisoners early once they have served two-thirds of their sentence and are no longer a threat to society.

“I agree with Speaker Vos that ‘when voters chose divided government, they didn’t choose inaction’. I hope Speaker Vos and Republicans live up to their words and choose to act on the policies that Wisconsinites care about. Only with bi-partisan support can we prove to our constituents that unlike in Washington, where the unpopular government shutdown shows no signs of ending, we in Madison can get things done.”

gordon-hintzMedicaid Expansion, Non-partisan Redistricting, and Public School Funding Highlighted


MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement after the latest Marquette poll confirmed that the majority of Wisconsinites support the agenda put forward by Governor Evers and legislative Democrats.

“The issues that Democrats have championed for years are the issues the people of Wisconsin care about. This poll confirms that the people we represent want us take the Medicaid expansion, fully fund our public schools, and pass non-partisan redistricting reform. The reason Governor Evers won in November is pretty simple: he listened to the people of our state. Republicans would be wise to join legislative Democrats in governing based on the priorities of the public rather than hiding behind gerrymandered maps to undermine the will of the people.”
