Scott Walker is not one who has hired particularly well in his career.
However, Mr. Walker finally has a success under his belt. He has hired Tom Engels, husband of Judi Rhodes Engels , to be his Assistant Deputy Secretary in charge of Department of Safety and Professional Services.
Tom has had an interesting right wing career:
Prior to coming to the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, Tom served as the Vice President of Public Affairs for the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin. From 1997 to 2000, Tom served as the Government Affairs Director for the Wisconsin State Telecommunications Association. Tom has previously held public service positions as then-Governor Tommy Thompson’s Deputy Press Secretary and as the Communications Director for the Senate Republican Caucus. He also held various staff positions in the State Senate and Assembly. Tom was also the District Field Representative for former United States Congressman Scott Klug.
While Tom might not always have had the best influences around him, but he seems to have handled it very well. We know that Mr. Engels has been able to keep his head, because he has used it to donate to Mary Burke for Wisconsin.
While his wife is being named in questionable fundraising schemes to help get republicans elected,
Tom was writing checks to Mary Burke to help take down the criminal schemer!
Kudo's Tom Engels....this Bud's for you!
