Scocos' replacement will earn same salary

MADISON (WKOW) -- The new secretary of the state's Department of Veterans Affairs will earn the same salary as the former secretary, John Scocos.

Sec. Ken Black will make $127, 274, or about $61 per hour, according to the Wisconsin Veterans Affairs Board. This is the same salary Scocos earned after six years in office.

The board fired Scocos on Nov. 24 and replaced him with Black. Scocos is suing the state for wrongful termination.
