Wisconsin Governor creates a position for former Ag Secretary

The now-former Wisconsin Ag Secretary Designee has landed a new position in the administration of Governor Tony Evers.  Brad Pfaff was removed as the administrator of the Department of Ag, Trade, and Consumer Protection last Tuesday when the State Senate denied his confirmation to the post.  Monday, Governor Evers created a new position, naming Pfaff as Director of Business and Rural Development for the state Department of Administration.  It’s a position that does not require Senate confirmation.

Pfaff’s new job reportedly pays just under $121,000 annually, which is slightly less than what he would have made as the DATCP Secretary.

Evers named Randy Romanski as interim Ag Secretary last Thursday and told Brownfield he is not in a hurry to name a new nominee.
