Neenah lawmaker says Treasurer going against promise to abolish office

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Republican state lawmaker says State Treasurer Kurt Schuller is going back on a promise to abolish his office.

Representative Dean Kaufert of Neenah asked the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee Monday to reject a request by Schueller to convert four temporary workers in his office into permanent employees.

Kaufert says the request proves that the Republican Schuller has abandoned his promise to try-and-eliminate the treasurer’s office after he current term on 2014.

Schuller put out a statement that the positions do not represent an expansion of government. He said he inherited the employees when he took over – and they’re all working close to 40-hours-a-week.

Schuller also said he kept his promise by offering a constitutional amendment to abolish his Treasurer’s office. The measure died in the Legislature in the last session.
