WEAC member Rick Erickson of Bayfield (top picture) and WEAC Secretary-Treasurer Kim Schroeder (lower picture) are among the many WEAC members who participated in discussions during state budget listening sessions hosted by Governor-Elect Tony Evers and Lieutenant Governor-Elect Mandela Barnes. The Superior hearing (top) and the La Crosse hearing (bottom) were part of a series designed for the governor-elect to hear from citizens about what they would like to see in the state budget proposal he will present to the Legislature in January. WEAC members were also well-represented at earlier hearings in Green Bay and Wausau. Another scheduled hearing is Wednesday in Milwaukee, although it has a waiting list.

WEAC has created another opportunity for educators to have their opinions and ideas voiced to the new administration – WEAC’s Feedback Form:

This form will be active throughout the budget and legislative session this winter and spring. WEAC member Amy Traynor serves on the governor-elect’s transition team, and will be sure your thoughts and ideas are brought forward as plans are made for Wisconsin’s new direction.
