A visit to Green Bay is never complete without a stop at @hinterlandbeer, lunch at Kroll’s, and a visit with the @packers, even though I barely recognized @AaronRodgers12 without the Canadian tuxedo. pic.twitter.com/mkVfDj3QCB

GREEN BAY (WKOW) — Gov. Tony Evers was in Green Bay today to tour the Packers Titletown District and talk a little football with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.
Evers quipped on Twitter that he, “barely recognized Rogers without his Canadian Tuxedo.”
Rogers caused a bit of a stir last week when he arrived in Winnipeg for the Packers’ preseason game against the Raiders. He wore all-denim, often referred to as the “Canadian tuxedo.”
Rogers was joined on his visit with Sen. Dave Hansen of Green Bay.

Evers held a news conference to announce LRB4019/1, legislation that will complete funding for the Experience Greater Green Bay Visitor Center project with a $2,000,000 state investment.
“Sen. Hansen and I have authored a bill that will provide state support to finish the funding for the
Experience Greater Green Bay Visitor Center. With partners in our community and the hard work of our
Convention and Visitors Bureau staff, $5 million of funds have already been raised,” Evers said. “This bill will provide the final $2 million to fund this public-private partnership that will promote state, regional, and local
tourism in addition to highlighting job opportunities to Brown County’s 5.7 million annual visitors. “
