Comments

State Bar service and law practice have provided me with extensive experience in financial matters that equip me to carry out the duties of Treasurer the Supreme Court established in SCR 10.04(2)(e). Before being elected to the Board of Governors, I served as Chair of the ADR Section, Construction and Public Contract Law Section, and the Section Leaders Council. I have been appointed by the President to serve on the Policy Committee and have been elected to the Executive Committee of the Board of Governors. These State Bar positions have informed me about overall Bar finance, and have given me detailed knowledge of financial, program, and member benefit issues. They have required me to work with staff on all of these issues, and I have proposed to continue working with staff on these issues if I am elected. I will meet regularly with the Executive Director and the State Bar administrative staff as well as the Finance Committee to carry out my oversight responsibilities. In private practice I have served on the Board of Directors and as President of a private law firm. I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Milwaukee Legal Aid Society. In all these positions, I have advised about audit issues, the balance of revenue and expenses, and the role of a balanced budget with reserve funds as both a driver and beneficiary of programs. I have advised clients about the use and misuse of funds, and assisted municipal clients with revenue problems.
