Gov. Thompson: Statement regarding Gov.-elect Evers’ appointment of Craig Thompson as Secretary of the Department of Transportation

“I commend Governor-Elect Evers on his appointment of Craig Thompson as
Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. As leader of the
statewide, multimodal Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin for
more than 10 years, Craig has developed a deep understanding of the connection
between a strong infrastructure and a strong economy and how all modes of
transportation play a role in our economic success.

“Craig served on Gov. Walker’s blue-ribbon Transportation Finance and Policy
Commission in 2012 and played an important role in the successful campaign in
2014 to amend the state’s Constitution to ensure that transportation revenues be
used exclusively for transportation investments. He understands the needs of our
transportation system as well as anyone who
has ever held the position.

“Gov.-Elect Evers has made a wise choice in this selection of a bi-partisan
consensus builder to tackle the significant transportation challenges facing
Wisconsin.”
