Evan Goyke

The Thompson Center was pleased to speak with Representative Evan Goyke. Representative Goyke spoke on his district and the city of Milwaukee and its importance to Wisconsin. He also talked about some of his work in pursuit of statewide criminal justice reform, particularly housing reform as a way to reduce crime, but also reforms more broadly. Representative Goyke also spoke on being a representative and the pressures faced by all lawmakers that make bipartisan solutions difficult to accomplish. One of his key take aways was that in passing bipartisan legislation the first step is the hardest and the fallout predicted by opponents to the legislation rarely materializes to the extent which was feared.

Gordon Hintz

The Thompson Center had a very insightful conversation with Representative and Wisconsin State Assembly Minority Leader Gordon Hintz. Representative Hintz spoke on his time and experience working in the state legislature, and what it is like to be in a position of leadership among equals. Hintz also discussed the barriers to bipartisanship in Wisconsin's divided government, and the erosion of trust between the parties. Other topics included areas of bipartisanship that could still be possible, the national Democratic Party, social media, and the problem of selection bias in where members of the public get their news.
