Gov. Evers visits small businesses in Tomah, assures them state wants to help with inflation

TOMAH, Wis. (WKBT) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers told small business owners in Tomah Thursday that he understands their concerns about inflation but assured them the state has their backs.

Evers’ comments came after he met with owners, starting at the Humbird Cheese Mart. The business received a $5,000 grant from the governor’s Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business Recovery Grant Program.

Evers also visited the Families First of Monroe County and BP Smokehouse.

“Certainly all of them are concerned about the inflationary pressures on their business, but in turn we’re number one in the percentage of federal funds that we’ve applied to businesses,” Evers said.

Evers also toured storm damage to the surrounding areas.
