WI Senate Fires Gov. Appointees

The Wisconsin Senate has, once again, fired some of the governor’s appointees.

Republicans in the Senate yesterday fired eight of Governor Evers’ people, including UW regents John Miller and Dana Wachs. They both voted against the compromise that cleared the way for pay raises for UW employees, as well as UW-Madison’s new engineering building. That agreement, though, came with a freeze on diversity, equity, and inclusion positions. The Senate also fired four appointees to the Wisconsin Judicial Commission. Senators say those four either didn’t know what their job was, or refused to answer questions about the direction of the state’s court system.
