MADISON, WI -- Representative Magnafici (R – Dresser) issued the following statement regarding Governor Evers’ On Going State Department Failures:
“For over two and a half years, I have been inundated with constituent contacts asking for help on receiving help or at least a response from our taxpayer-funded State Departments. The largest culprits are the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS).
During the Evers’ business shutdown, unemployment claims skyrocketed, and Wisconsinites were forced out of work and unable to receive unemployment. An audit uncovered that DWD answered 1% of calls and left 38 million calls from Wisconsinites with a blocked or busy signal from March to June 2020. With DSPS, my constituents have experienced long delays of up to a year to receive their professional licenses.
Governor Evers has appointed underqualified and inexperienced leadership teams who have left Wisconsin behind. Your State Government should be working for you, not against you. Please get in touch with my office if you are experiencing any problems from our taxpayer-funded State Departments: +1 (608) 267-2365 / Rep.Magnafici@legis.wi.gov”
