MADISON (WKOW) -- Former state assembly majority leader Scott Suder will begin his new state job next month, making significantly more salary than during his time as a lawmaker.
State public service commission spokesperson Nathan Conrad tells 27 News Suder will begin as the commission's division administrator for water, compliance and consumer affairs Oct. 7.
Conrad says Suder's salary will be $94,000. Suder's salary as a lawmaker was less than $50,000.
Last week, Governor Walker told reporters he remains confident in his selection of Suder, despite Suder's role in facilitating a group's receipt of a $500,000 state sportsmen's grant. Walker stopped the grant, after the group's president misrepresented the group's non-profit status, and after revelations the group's president was cited previously for hunting bear without the proper permit.
