County Treasurers’ meeting
Yesterday, I sent my Deputy, Scott Feldt, to Eau Claire for the County Treasurers’ summer conference. Scott had the opportunity to speak during the event’s luncheon, and chose to discuss the upcoming transition of the Local Government Investment Pool (LGIP) to the Department of Administration (DOA). He helped to assuage the Treasurers’ fears by explaining that the Treasurer’s Office and DOA were committed to a seemless transition that will occur over a 4-6 week period.
Additionally, Scott reinforced that I and my office will remain attentive to the County Treasurers’ concerns even after the move is completed, and I will continue to be an advocate for them with DOA should the need arise.
I will be an advocate for the County Treasurers not only because it is my responsibility, but also because of the County Treasurers themselves. They are good public servants who deal with a myriad of important financial issues every day, and I respect their dedication and their service.
