MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Assembly's former majority leader is getting an 88 percent pay raise in his new job.
The State Public Service Commission said Monday that Scott Suder will get $94,000 a year as a division administrator for water compliance and consumer affairs.
The PSC finalized its hiring of Suder on Friday, but it did not announce the move until Monday. Suder will begin his new job on October 7th.
He left the Assembly the day after Labor Day, after more than 14-and-a-half years in the lower House. Suder had been the majority leader for just over two-and-a-half years, after the GOP took full control of state government.
His former Republican colleagues elected Bill Kramer of Waukesha to replace Suder as the majority leader.
Back home, four Republicans are running for his former Assembly seat this fall. No Democrats have come forward yet.
