Gov. Tony Evers says he’s not talking with the Republicans in the Legislature right now because he wants to hear what the citizens of Wisconsin have to say regarding the budget. I realize my view of the situation may not match what others are thinking, but let’s give it a shot.
The governor and the legislators most certainly need to listen to the citizens they represent, but they have another major responsibility in governing that requires them to work together. I respect that the governor wants to hear from the citizens, but he needs to listen to and work with both Republicans and Democrats in the Legislature.
I voted for Gov. Evers, but am sorely disappointed that he seems unwilling to meet regularly with Republicans. I long for the days the two parties could actually work together and get something done.
