An outgoing state legislator has her next job lined up. Governor Tony Evers on Thursday appointed State Representative Chris Taylor to be a Dane County judge.

Taylor is a Democrat who’s represented Madison’s east side in the legislature for five terms. Before that, she worked for Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.

She announced in March she would not seek re-election. Taylor will fill Jill Karofsky’s seat. Karofsky was elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
