We’re Watching … Tony Evers/Mandela Barnes


In November, 2018, Wisconsin voters sad no to Republican Governor Scott Walker and Yes to Democrat Tony Evers. The new governor, who graced us with a visit to one of our monthly meetings during the campaign, has brought a new spirit to Madison. Perhaps foremost is his emphasis on education at all levels. A former Department of Public Instruction head, Evers has already signaled his intent to make education a priority. Check out his state of the state address below. Joining Evers is new Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, a former Milwaukee area state representative. Barnes is the first African American elected as Lieutenant Governor in the state’s history. Check this page frequently for news and information on the two Democrats.
