MADISON, WI – State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski and her husband Max Duckworth are overjoyed to announce the arrival of their first child. Baby Duckworth Godlewski made his arrival Tuesday morning at 8 lbs, 15 ounces and 22 inches long at Meriter Hospital.

State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski is the first Wisconsin constitutional officer to give birth while in office. Inducted on January 7, 2019, she is the thirty-sixth State Treasurer of Wisconsin. As an experienced financial expert, Treasurer Godlewski serves as a fiscal watchdog for the state and works to tackle issues of economic security for all Wisconsinites.

In her role as Chair of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, which manages the Common School Fund, Treasurer Godlewski looks for ways to invest in the public good while still ensuring strong financial returns. These win-win investments ensure taxpayers are getting the most value for their money.

Prior to serving, Godlewski co-founded a socially responsible investment firm, MaSa Partners, and was a founding member of WE Capital, providing financial and human capital to women entrepreneurs. Her work has been recognized internationally for achieving positive impacts without sacrificing financial returns. Treasurer Godlewski spent nearly a decade at the Pentagon, where she worked to save taxpayers tens of millions of dollars. Her work creating a performance-based budgeting process for local government has been featured in Public Manager magazine. Godlewski began supporting financial literacy initiatives as an adjunct professor at George Mason University and seeks to empower Wisconsinites with tools and resources to ensure their financial security.

The Treasurer is a proud fifth-generation Wisconsinite and Green Bay Packer fan. She lives with her husband Max, their rescue dog, Tanner, and now their new little boy.
