Dear Dedicated State Employees:
I write during State Employee Recognition Week with gratitude and a full heart.
I wanted to take the opportunity today to express my thanks and appreciation for everything you do for the people of our state.
Whether you’re reviewing license applicants or tax filings, helping people access life-saving services, working to protect wildlife and our environment, or ensuring folks can reenter our communities with the skills they need to be successful, no matter which department you work in or the services you provide, I want you to know that the work you do—and how you do it—matters. It matters to me, and it matters to the people we all have the privilege of fighting for and serving each day.
It’s your work that ensures people get the services they need that could change or save their lives. It’s your work that protects consumers and holds bad actors accountable when they cause harm. It’s your work that keeps our roads and highways safe and reliable. It’s your work that ensures our kids have access to a high-quality public education at every level, regardless of their zip code.
It’s you who people turn to sometimes during the hardest times of their lives to seek refuge, guidance, and assistance, and to know that someone is in their corner working for them.
So, I want to thank you for your service each day united in our promise to do what’s best for the people of our state and to make space for hope in lives across Wisconsin.
It’s a new day, and I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing more about your good work, elevating your voices, and continuing to look for ways to support you in service.
With my sincerest gratitude and respect,
Governor Tony Evers
