WEDC leader will step down this fall

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)--- It looks like the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation will need a new leader within the next few months.

WEDC spokesman David Callender says the agency's chief executive officer, Mark Hogan, will step down sometime this fall Callender says Hogan hasn't set a specific date.

Republicans passed a law in December that prohibits Democratic Gov. Tony Evers from appointing Hogan's replacement before Sept. 1.

Evers spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff didn't immediately respond to an email inquiring about whether the governor would allow Hogan to remain at the agency if Hogan plans to step down after Sept. 1.
