Eau Claire (WQOW) – Gov. Tony Evers made a stop in Eau Claire Friday afternoon to take a look at the city’s downtown developments.

Gov. Evers was accompanied by Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation secretary Missy Hughes on a walking tour to different downtown businesses, including the Oxbow Hotel, Jamf Software and the Pablo Center.

It was all to survey the development in the area and speak with business leaders.

The governor said he’s impressed with the make-over the downtown area has undergone.

“I remember when I was on the Board of Regents and I hadn’t been in Eau Claire for a while, people were talking about the confluence project, I thought, ‘What in the world is that?’ And here it is. It’s just an extraordinary benefit for the whole state of Wisconsin. Whatever investment the state has made, it’s been a good investment,” said Evers.

The visit was part of Evers’ Get Aquainted tour of Wisconsin. He and Sec. Hughes have two more stops next week in La Crosse and Prairie du Chien.
