Today, Governor-elect Tony Evers and Lieutenant Governor-elect Mandela Barnes announced that their inaugural committee will partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee, which will serve as the fiscal agent and recipient of charitable contributions associated with inaugural celebrations. The inauguration ceremony is scheduled for 11 am on Monday, January 7, with gala events planned for that evening.
“Wisconsinites are ready to move past the endless political battles and chart a new path forward for our state,” Evers said in a press release. “Our inauguration will celebrate the diversity of our state, bring people together, and begin to refocus our government in service to the people of Wisconsin. I am excited to celebrate the bright future of our state with the people of Wisconsin. I invite all Wisconsin residents to join us in this celebration of our future.”
The Inaugural Committee and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee will announce additional information about inaugural events soon.
