Senator Kapenga – It’s About Time!

Madison, WI — Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) released the following statement in response to the firing of the Department of Workforce Development Secretary-designee Caleb Frostman today.

“Governor Evers’ administration and the leadership at DWD have been failing the people of Wisconsin since March with legislative Republicans recommending this action months ago.
There is no doubt this leaves another stain directly on Governor Evers’ ability to choose qualified leaders in his administration. I hope for the sake of the nearly 100,000 people who haven’t received their unemployment checks that the new Secretary-designee fixes this disaster quickly.”


Senator Kapenga represents the 33rd Senate District, which covers most of central Waukesha County and Lake Country.
