The state of Wisconsin will be missing a dedicated public servant with the retirement of Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Secretary Ben Brancel and I will miss serving with him in Governor Walker’s cabinet. Through his many years in public service, Ben has always understood the challenges of making laws and implementing them. I offer my appreciation for those years of service. I congratulate him and wish Ben a rewarding retirement. He has definitely earned it.
