Latest turmoil at WEDC prompts Democrats to demand changes. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 5/7/2013)
Meet John Gillespie, who will soon be updating his LinkedIn profile, I assume.
This Public Affairs Institute?
Last month, John was hired as WEDC's public information officer. On Monday, May 6, he submitted his resignation.
In yet another sign of WEDC's increasingly dysfunctional operation, the hiring committee -- raise your hands, please, so we can recognize you -- must have decided to dispense with the basic vetting process.
A reporter from Madison's WKOW-TV did the work for them.
John owes the State of Wisconsin $36,046.56 in back taxes.
It's a public record, WEDC folks.
It gets worse.
In a separate case from Outagamie County, the state Department of Workforce Development filed a warrant seeking nearly $8,000 in unemployment insurance compensation benefits he received.
