Appearances are no longer a concern for an arrogant Republican governor like Scott Walker, who's made it clear his citizen black lists will be used to punish the resistance.
For a governor concerned about jobs and business, he went with a snowmobile club member, instead of his first choice, a student who has already started two businesses and is a member of the Pioneer Launch Lab for young entrepreneurs. Good play Scotty.
jsonline: Gov. Scott Walker on Friday appointed a University of Wisconsin-Platteville student to the UW System Board of Regents after earlier this summer yanking another student's appointment because he didn't disclose that he signed a petition seeking the governor's recall two years ago.
Chad Landes, a UW-Platteville student majoring in animal science, will get the seat that the governor initially promised to Joshua Inglett, a UW-Platteville engineering physics student. Inglett had signed the recall petition as an 18-year-old freshman. Inglett is pursuing a double minor in mathematics and business administration. He's a member of the Pioneer Launch Lab for young entrepreneurs, and the founder of two businesses: one related to travel packages for large groups, and one that produces OEM computers and develops and tests proprietary software, according to his résumé.
Who cares about business and entrepreneurs, snowmobiles, "spirit" and volunteerism are really more important traits under Walker. The Walker Black List is official:
Walker said Landes' "strong spirit of service and volunteerism makes him a great fit for the Board of Regents."
