STEVENS POINT — Candidate for Governor Sen. Kathleen Vinehout will share her vision for the state at Kristin’s Riverwalk on Tuesday.
Located at 1140 Clark St., the governor for candidate will take questions, and listen to the concerns of Stevens Point residents. This event will run from 5PM to 6:30 p.m. On Friday, she released a four-point plan to address the “very serious management problems” with the state’s veterans homes.
“As Governor, I will restore funding to the Veteran Assistance Program for homeless veterans, and to the Assistance to Needy Veterans program, both of which were cut by the current Governor in his first budget,” Vinehout said.
“I will stop the current practice of shifting funds away from our Veterans Homes to fund other budget needs at the expense of our veterans.”
“I will focus state resources on high quality medical care, recreational opportunities, and well-trained staff. To retain high quality staff, I will fill vacant positions and raise wages, if needed.”
“I will restore the advisory organizations including the Board of Veterans Affairs committees to oversee program review, legislation, long term care and financing.”
