The state Senate has confirmed Paul Jadin, Governor Scott Walker’s pick to head the state Commerce Department. The vote to confirm the former Green Bay mayor was unanimous. “Today I will support Paul. I haven’t always agreed with him and I’m sure I’ll disagree with him in the future, but he is qualified to hold this position,” said Green Bay Democrat, state Senator Dave Hansen. Green Bay’s other state Senator, Republican Rob Cowles, said Jadin was well qualified for a number of posts within the Walker administration. “He’s intelectually honest, and I think he is strong enough to tell the governor when the governor might be on the wrong track.” Jadin, who most recently headed the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, was tapped by Governor Walker to oversee the transformation of the state Commerce Department into a public/private Economic Development Corporation.
