Gov. Tony Evers is doing the right thing for Forest County and all of Wisconsin. Under his leadership, Forest County businesses have received 254 grants to help open or expand, pay bills, stock shelves, hire employees, and more. He has also followed through on his promise to expand high-speed internet access by investing $939,200 in Forest County projects alone, extending internet access to more than 1,695 residential locations and over 100 businesses. 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 Forest County, and he’s just getting started.
On December 22, 2021, the governor visited the Forest County Potawatomi Reservation to tour the Tribe’s new community center, meet with members of the tribal council, and get a sneak peek at the new pickleball courts at the community center.
