Gottlieb’s Leadership Will Be Missed

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) responded to today’s announcement of a shift in leadership at the state Department of Transportation:

“I want to thank Secretary Mark Gottlieb for his leadership at Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation over the past several years. When faced with a daunting task of maintaining our state’s aging infrastructure with limited resources, Mark recognized the severity of our problems and helped offer a comprehensive, sustainable solution to meet our needs.

“Leadership often means taking a stand for what you know is right, regardless of how politically popular it may be. As we prepare to tackle the challenge of our state’s next budget, Secretary Gottlieb’s leadership and experience will be greatly missed.”
