Honoring the Life and Public Service of Dale Cattanach

GREEN BAY– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement in response to the passing of former Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau Director, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, and State Auditor Dale Cattanach: 

“Earlier this week Wisconsin lost one of its great public servants in Dale Cattanach. From his time serving as the very first director of the Legislative Fiscal Bureau, throughout his tenure as Secretary of the Department of Transportation, and his nearly two decades serving as State Auditor with the Legislative Audit Bureau, Dale Cattanach embodied the dedication and service of our state’s distinguished legislative service agencies. His commitment and devotion was to the highest standards of service to the citizens of Wisconsin and his integrity, strength, and character still exemplify the work our legislative service agencies do today. 

“Secretary Cattanach’s family, friends, and former colleagues are in my thoughts and prayers.”
