Wednesday, December 29th, 2021 -- 8:05 AM
(WMTV) Dozens more pardons granted by Gov. Tony Evers this week pushes him past any governor in recent history in terms of the number given in the first three years of an administration, his office declared.
The Evers Administration announced the 30 newest ones Tuesday morning. Including these recent ones, Evers has now granted 337 pardons, according to his office, which called it the most of any contemporary governor.
In a statement announcing this latest round, Evers said he was proud of his administration’s work to provide second chances to the pardoned individuals who have “made amends and paid their debts to society.”
“These individuals have recognized and acknowledged their past mistakes, and this sends a powerful message of redemption as each of them work to build a brighter, better future for themselves and their communities,” Evers said.
