Welcome to my campaign website!
My name is Jay Schroeder and I am a candidate for Wisconsin's Secretary of State in 2014. The current incumbent of that office has been hunkered down in Madison for over 33 years with very little to do, and it is my goal to empower the voters of Wisconsin to determine the fate of this do-nothing office.
Beginning with the creation of the Department of Financial Institutions in 1995 under then Governor Tommy Thompson, the Secretary of State office was stripped of many of its tasks and duties. Since then, in 2011 Governor Scott Walker reduced the Office of the Secretary of State further taking away its duties.
Why not simply just eliminate the office if it has no useful purpose? Excellent question! Since the office of Secretary of State is a constitutional office the only way to eliminate the office is to amend the Wisconsin Constitution. As you can imagine, this is no easy task. This is why I intend to empower the voters of Wisconsin to have the option to eliminate this expensive and unnecessary office.
By giving you, the voters the facts, my hope is that you will use that information to contact your state senator and assemblyman and let them know that you do not want to spend over $1 Million a biannual budget to run an office with no important purpose.
