MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. -elect Tony Evers and incoming Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes will go on a statewide budget listening tour starting this week.

Each session is open to the public. Participants will be able to share their budget priorities with Evers, Barnes and transition policy staff.
“The people of Wisconsin elected me to solve problems and listen to the needs of everyone,” Evers said Saturday in a statement announcing the tour, adding “Through this process, we are going to hear directly from the people and build a budget that reflects the values and priorities of the citizens of Wisconsin.”
The tour kicks off Tuesday in Green Bay. Other stops are planned Wednesday in Wausau. It will wrap up Dec. 19 in Milwaukee.
