UPDATE: Well, how about that: We have 2 more Paul Ryan connections with Walker's latest UW Regents appointments

Gov. Scott Walker appoints 3 new members of UW Board of Regents.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 2/13/2016)
Tracey Klein and Bryan Steil were appointed as citizen members. Lisa Erickson is a non-traditional student member.

It's a family affair:
To his two great-grandchildren and ten grandchildren, including my former and future staffers Bryan and Allison Steil: your grandfather's zest for life and selfless commitment to service provides a guiding light for you to follow for years to come.  (From A Life Lived For Others: A Tribute To George K. Steil, Sr, delivered by Rep. Ryan on the floor of the U.S. house on 4/23/2009)

Apparently, Bryan is the go-to guy when the media wants a 'just your hometown boy/average guy' kinda quote:
  • "He's just a typical, average guy. You really get a guy who relates to the average voter."  (USA Today, 8/28/2012)
  • "You are as likely to see Paul on a Sunday morning news show as you are to see him grocery shopping at Schnucks on Sunday night."  (Isthmus, 10/9/2014)

The Lisa Erickson connection is a bit more tenuous, but it's there.

As quoted in  Wild Chow: Interview with Wild Game Chef Lisa Erickson.  (Game and Fish, 9/11/2012)

Her previous gig was unexpectedly cut short.
