Evers Appoints Romanski as Interim DATCP Secretary

Governor Tony Evers is
appointing Randy Romanski as interim secretary of the Wisconsin Department of
Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The move comes after Senate
Republicans failed to confirm Evers’ ag secretary nominee Brad Pfaff earlier
this week, voting 19-14 on party lines against Pfaff’s confirmation. Evers
said in a statement, “our farmers are experiencing a growing dairy crisis,
devastating flooding and an unpredictable trade war, the last thing they need
is Republican politicians playing political games with our leading agricultural
agency.” Romanski was serving as D-A-T-C-P deputy secretary, and was
ag secretary under former Governor Jim Doyle.
