Mary Lazich, New Berlin Citizens Group, Learn DNR Secretary's Name

The New Berlin chapter of Citizens for Responsible Government enlisted State Sen. Mary Lazich to find out just why the Wisconsin DNR secretary was not responding to an important letter from the New Berlin Common Council.

You know how government bureaucracies are, especially that DNR...dragging its feet, dissing the CRG got Sen. Lazich on the case, and she found out why.

Turns out the letter had been sent to one John Welcher, who is not the DNR secretary.

The CRG in New Berlin has decided to put all this on a blog, here.

Here is the key paragraph, and no, I am not making this up:

"Mary Lazich was informed on November 5, 2007 that Mr Welcher was NOT the Secretary of the DNR. The letter was not forwarded to the secretary in any case. At the present time the letter has not been located."

For the record, the DNR secretary is Matt Frank. The DNR website list no employee named John Welcher.
