MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today appointed Randy Romanski as interim Secretary of the Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) following unprecedented actions by Senate Republicans on Tuesday to fire Gov. Evers’ DATCP cabinet appointee, Brad Pfaff.

“Our farmers are experiencing a growing dairy crisis, devastating flooding, and an unpredictable trade war, the last thing they need is Republican politicians playing political games with our leading agricultural agency,” Gov. Evers said. “I’m disappointed by the actions Senate Republicans decided to take on Tuesday, but I believe the agency and our farmers will be in good hands with Randy leading the way.”

Romanski has held leadership roles across various Wisconsin state agencies, and previously served as DATCP deputy secretary and secretary under former Gov. Jim Doyle.
