Representative Lisa Subeck Statement on

Republican Proposed Overhaul of the GAB

October 7, 2015

MADISON –Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to the proposal from Governor Walker and legislative Republicans to overhaul the Government Accountability Board replacing nonpartisan judges with partisan appointees.

“Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board succeeds in its role of effectively and fairly administering our state’s elections and enforcing ethics laws and standards. The Republican proposal to overhaul GAB is the latest in a long string of attempts to rig the system in their own favor.

Wisconsinites want to know that their elected officials are accountable to the people, which is why GAB officials should remain non-partisan, instead of partisan lapdogs.”
