“Shall sections 1 and 3 of article VI and sections 7 and 8 of article X of the constitution be amended, and section 17 of article XIV of the constitution be created, to eliminate the office of state treasurer from the constitution and to replace the state treasurer with the lieutenant governor as a member of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands?”
WI Attorney General Brad Schimel provides this explanation:
A “yes” vote on this question would eliminate the constitutional office of theTreasurer. It would replace the Treasurer with the Lieutenant Governor as a member of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands.
A “no” vote would retain the constitutional office of the Treasurer under Article
“I can verify that the office no longer has any significant responsibilities. Currently, I serve only on one board, the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, which requires just a few phone calls per month. That’s honestly it!”
Adamczyk wrote a guest blog for Right Wisconsin. He’s right. The worthless office is a waste of taxpayer money.
The vote on this question Tuesday is YES.
