Gov. Tony Evers is doing the right thing for Calumet County and all of Wisconsin. Under his leadership, 23 Calumet County small businesses have opened their doors or expanded and Calumet County businesses have received an additional 553 grants to help pay bills, stock shelves, hire employees, and more. Across Wisconsin, Gov. Evers continues to deliver results. 86% of Wisconsinites have received a 15% income tax cut or more, unemployment is at historic lows, and our schools are ranked among the top 10 in the nation. Gov. Evers has brought Republicans and Democrats together to do the right thing for communities and families in Calumet County, and he’s just getting started.
Gov. Evers visited Chilton Elementary and Middle School in Calumet County as part of a statewide tour announcing his $110 million investment in Wisconsin’s kids and schools. This investment, with funding provided to every school district in the state, delivered on the governor’s promise made when he signed the 2021-23 biennial budget to provide more than $100 million in new, additional funding to Wisconsin’s schools.
Chilton schools will receive $140,000 of that money. “The money we are receiving is invaluable to meeting those diverse needs,” explained Chilton Schools Superintendent Susan Kaphingst.
