Evers makes stop at UWGB following budget signing – The Press

GREEN BAY – Gov. Tony Evers made a stop at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UWGB) Thursday, July 8, just hours after signing the $87 billion, two-year Wisconsin state budget, which includes the construction of the new Cofrin Technology and Education Center.“Hallelujah, it is going to happen…” Evers said. “Especially excited to be here today at UW-Green Bay because with this bipartisan budget, and our capital budget, we will be providing more than $96 million dollars to bring this building down and to create a new building in its place. It seems like it’s been forever.” State Rep. Kristina Shelton, who was at Thursday’s press conference, said the path to get to this point was a team effort.“When I think about the future of UWGB, our community and our state, I remain hopeful and inspired,” Shelton said. “The Cofrin Technology and Education Center reminds us that it is our duty to rise up together like the Phoenix of UWGB and create a future we can all be proud of. Now is the time to invest in the things we share and to invest in each other. And I want to thank Gov. Evers for investing in us.”
