Scott Fitzgerald Says There Are “Concerns” With Governor’s Administration Picks

(Madison) The year is ending without many of Governor Tony Evers’ picks for his administration still not confirmed by the state Senate. All were tapped to serve by the Democratic Governor a year ago, but several have yet to be confirmed. Evers says these individuals need to be confirmed and that is the bottom line.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau says some of his members have “concerns” – not all clearly specified – regarding some of Evers’ picks. He says there are other Evers’ picks that have garnered enough support and adds that they will put several on the calendar in the new year to be confirmed by the Senate.

Appointees yet to be confirmed include Craig Thompson at DOT, Andrea Palm at the Department of Health Services, and Preston Cole at DNR.
