(Racine, WI) – “Last night I was saddened to see that the Republican led State Assembly continued to move Wisconsin forward down the progressive track of big government bureaucracy by voting to eliminate a constitutionally elected officer,” stated Bill Folk, Candidate for Secretary of State. “Moderate Republicans have spent years giving away the duties of the State Treasurer to unelected government employees that are unaccountable to the taxpayers of Wisconsin. Luckily the bill (AJR48) to amend the state constitution will still need to pass the next legislative session and then be voted on by the voters of Wisconsin in a statewide referendum.”

Folk continued, “I will continue to share my vision for Wisconsin that is elected and accountable to the people of Wisconsin.”
