Governor-elect Tony Evers, and Lt. Governor-elect Mandela Barnes will launch a statewide tour Tuesday to gather public input on budget priorities as they prepare to take office in January.

The tour will kick off in Green Bay and wrap up in Milwaukee the following week. Each session is open to the public and will give participants a chance to share their budget ideas with Evers, Barnes, and their 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.

"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," he added.

Anyone interested in attending any of the sessions may register online at the links for each stop of the tour. The sessions are:

Tuesday in Green Bay: 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Phoenix Room at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Union.
