Suder gone, Bill Kramer likely majority leader
As expected, Governor Scott Walker named State Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder to a position with the Public Service Commission.
State Representative Scott Suder – Public Service Commission
Representative Scott Suder has been named as the new Public Service Commission Division Administrator for Water Compliance and Consumer Affairs. Rep. Suder has represented the 69th assembly district since 1998. He is originally from Medford, Wisconsin and was a member of the Air National Guard from 2003-2010.
“Representative Suder has long served the residents of Wisconsin,” Governor Walker said. “The Public Service Commission will benefit from his talents and experience. I thank Representative Suder for his work in the Legislature and I look forward to being able to work with him in this new capacity.”
Suder’s departure means a leadership contest in Madison. Waukesha State Rep Bill Kramer appears likely to have enough votes to become the next Assembly majority leader. His opponent is State Rep Dean Knudson of Hudson.
I’ll have more on the contest in tomorrow’s Waukesha Freeman, still just fifty cents, half what it costs to buy a Snickers bar in the vending machine.
