Joel Brennan, secretary of Wisconsin Department of Administration, spoke to the Milwaukee Rotary Club last week. He discussed Gov. Tony Evers’ plans to shrink the state’s real estate portfolio over the next decade and what was lost when lawmakers removed plans for a new state office building at 27th Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee from the state budget. Brennan also touched on the state budget process and how he has become “a little more cynical” after two years of working in state government.

In partnership with the Rotary Club of Milwaukee.
