Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) – On Saturday, Tony Evers, Democratic candidate for governor, held his Canvass Kickoff at the Eau Claire Democratic Party Resource Center.

Evers was accompanied by supporters at the Canvass Kickoff. News 18 spoke to Evers about the recent ad that claims that he will raise taxes. Evers was quoted saying, “All options are on the table.”

“We have 870,000 families in the state of Wisconsin that can’t afford the basics, that’s food, that’s rent, that’s utilities, that’s childcare. Those people need a break. We have been giving lots of other breaks in the state to the people that really struggle, need the break, so that’s my baseline on tax policy,” said Evers.

News 18 also asked Evers if he would favor repealing Act 10, which made unions for teachers and other government workers powerless.

“I’m very confident, or almost confident that Act 10 will repeal, not end up on my desk on the very first day,” said Evers. “So, what I’m going to be doing is making sure that the people working in the public sector, that I have some influence over, have some voice in what they do.”
