I never miss a chance to talk about the role of the State Treasurer. Wisconsinites deserve a fiscal watchdog to provide accountability and transparency on where their tax dollars are going. Take a couple minutes to watch my update on WISN Milwaukee.

Spoiler: I’m excited to be expecting my first child soon! While I’m the first constitutional officer to be expecting, I know that I won’t be the last. My office is working to cultivate a maternity leave policy so to set the tone that working moms have a place serving in our state government.

Evers pumps more money into K-12 through partial vetoes as he signs budget | WisPolitics.com

Gov. Tony Evers signed the budget into law and used his veto pen to secure more funding for students! $742 per student for the next two years. While I have reservations on the line item veto pen, and think we should debate getting rid of it, his vetoes move the Badger State in a new direction and tackles the #1 issue, besides healthcare, that Wisconsinites care about. Also of note locally is Evers cut out $5 million for starting the process of building a new Green Bay Correctional Institute in Allouez. I think this is a good move because the approach of leasing a building / space from a private entity for a new state prison is stupid and not a good use of taxpayers money. We need a new prison but not this way. We have to have a serious conversation and focus on reducing Wisconsin’s prison population and supporting programs for people who did their time.

Arts and creativity have a better return on investment in Wisconsin for jobs and economic impact than Foxconn. Just saying.

“People say access to (retirement) tools is a really critical problem,” Godlewski said. “When you give them access to retirement, they’re 15 times more likely to save.” - Sarah Godlewski. State Treasurer Godlewski is exploring state-run retirement plans to help workers in the private sector who don’t have access to a retirement plan through their employers.

Gov. Tony Evers’ budget requests an increase in special education for public schools. This would be huge for Green Bay Area Public and Ashwaubenon School Districts. Republicans are saying no. No to real education funding. No to opportunity for our kids. GB Area Schools would get a bump of over $16 million and Ashwaubenon schools would hit nearly $1.5 million. Contact your state lawmakers. Tell them to support an increase in special education funding from the state.

No vouchers! I don’t believe wealthy families should get a huge subsidy from taxpayers because they choose not to attend our great public schools. There is no study yet that proves private schools are better than public. Voucher schools are compensated more per student than public school per pupil funding.

The League opposes the use of tax money for private schools. The public needs to be informed about how tax much of our tax money is being given as vouchers for private school tuition. Contact your legislators to support this voucher transparency bill which would add information about the voucher tax to the property tax bills of Wisconsin property owners!

Are you considering applying to be a speaker at TEDxUW-Green Bay's 2019 event? Here is what 2018 speaker (And 2019 Content Coach) Jennie Young had to say about her experience with TEDxUW-Green Bay:

"Being a TEDx speaker was definitely one of the highlights of my professional career. I have this topic that I'm passionate about and to which I've dedicated years of my life studying, but until the TEDx opportunity presented itself, I couldn't find the right kind of forum for sharing my ideas. Since my talk and because of the reputation and profile of the TED organization, I've been able to interact with people and organizations in ways that allow me to bring my academic work (improving high school culture in America) into the public sphere were it makes an actual difference"

“Cheating contractors create an unlevel playing field for contractors that play by the rules,” Nick Wille, with North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters, said. “Contractors like Ed Lunn Construction are hiring subcontractors and independent contractors and paying them off the books in cash and under the table.”

“What we are beginning to see more and more clearly is a snowball effect of vouchers negatively impacting Wisconsin’s public schools. As the voucher cap continues to increase, we are seeing runaway costs paying for an unnecessary competing school system that has not proven to be any more effective or successful than public schools,” State Rep. Sondy Pope. Read more >>>http://www.thewheelerreport.com/wheeler_d…/…/0328pope_01.pdf

Status of State Medicaid Expansion Decisions: Interactive Map

Everyone deserves to be in good health. Why would you not spend $1 to get $9 in investment in our healthcare system?

How does this reduce the cost of healthcare in Wisconsin, if you get coverage through your employer?

Simple.

More people covered means more preventative care, leading to less costlier health issues and less unpaid hospital bills. This is a win for us with employer plans as our premiums will be less. That’s because hospitals are not passing along high cost of unpaid medical bills because more people are covered by insurance like BadgerCare.

Former local radio news reporter runs as progressive for State Assembly

Lawmakers are not working in the interests of people and families and that’s why I have taken an active role to fight for what is important. After some hard lessons, I have grown to learn that democracy goes beyond the ballot box. I have been serving the community in different ways: First as a local Radio News Reporter and government watchdog and now as an activist for community-driven change. Our elected lawmakers are supposed to protect and fight for our ability to live better lives. I want to work hard to make that happen in Wisconsin. I’m listening and ready to work for you.

The most important thing to me is family. My partner, Jenn, and I have three kids: son Jakk, 10, and twin daughters Kennedy and Evelyn, 5. Jenn and I work full-time jobs, we struggle to pay bills and strive hard to save money. We work hard to give the best we can to our kids. We have spent the last several years working opposite schedules just to minimize childcare needs and costs. Our family is always asking why our health insurance doesn’t cover what we need. Why is mental health so inaccessible and unaffordable? Does our public school have the resources it needs to teach our kids? Will our kids be safe in school from gun violence?

While in broadcasting, I worked locally at WTAQ-FM and as a TV Producer at WBAY-TV. A career change led me to Schneider, one of Brown County’s largest employers. Volunteering for the issue-advocacy group Citizen Action Northeast Wisconsin is a rewarding experience. Together, we are working on issues like healthcare reform, promoting non-partisan redistricting reform, fighting against the rollback of environmental protections in our state, encouraging participation in democracy, and helped organize local opposition to the billions in taxpayer money being spent on Foxconn.
