MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Republican lawmaker from southeastern Wisconsin will replace an embattled former legislator at the state Public Service Commission.
Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder resigned from the Legislature in August to take a $94,000 job as the PSC's water division administrator. Shortly after he accepted the job news broke that he funneled a state hunting recruiting grant to a politically connected group.
The Wisconsin Paper Council announced Friday that Suder has accepted a position as vice president of government relations. He'll start on Oct. 7.
Meanwhile on Thursday, Rep. Jeff Stone of Greendale announced he will resign on Oct. 14. A few minutes later the PSC released a statement saying Stone will become the next water division administrator.
