Appleton — Today, Wisconsinites from across the state voted in favor of keeping our constitution the way our founders proposed. We are so proud and thankful for the communities and grassroots organizations that believed in this office, defeating the first ballot referendum since 1992.
Wisconsin has a tradition of an open and transparent government, and by retaining our office of State Treasurer, the people have spoken that we need a true fiscal watchdog — independent of any administration or legislature. We now need to move forward and give the powers laid out in the constitution back to the office of State Treasurer so we can guard our taxpayers’ money from any and all fiscal abuse or corruption.
