Statement: Appointment of Rep. Barca to Administration
January 3, 2019
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after Governor-elect Tony Evers named Rep. Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) the new secretary of the Department of Revenue.
“I would like to congratulate Rep. Barca on his appointment in the new administration. Governor-elect Evers finally got one right. Rep. Barca is a reasonable Democrat who is more than willing to work across the aisle and has the political courage to do what’s right for the people of Wisconsin. The Assembly’s loss is certainly the administration’s gain. I want to wish Peter the best of luck in his new position and thank him for his friendship and service in the state Assembly.”
