Treasurer: Be Done With My Office
In Wisconsin, you won't find long lists of people who have run for office with the intention of getting rid of that office. But that's what Kurt Schuller promised as he campaigned for the office of State Treasurer. And that's what he intends to do. Schuller's drafted a constitutional amendment that will cut his office and that of the Secretary of State. The constitutional amendment process will require two consecutive legislatures to agree before it heads to a statewide ballot. Schuller's confident the measure will pass because the time has passed since either office has duties that justify having constitutional officer status. Current Secretary of State Doug LaFollette is not as enthused about the proposal as Schuller.
