Zipperer resigning Senate seat to join Walker's staff

Gov. Scott Walker announced today GOP state Sen. Rich Zipperer is resigning his seat in the Legislature to become his deputy chief of staff and senior legal counsel.

Zipperer, R-Pewaukee, represents a solidly Republican district that he won in 2010 after serving two terms in the Assembly. He said in a statement he will resign his seat Aug. 5.

His seat will be filled in a special election.

Zipperer said he has been proud to advance reforms balancing the budget, eliminating wasteful spending and bringing jobs back to Wisconsin.

“Even with these victories, much more remains to be done, and I am honored that Governor Walker has asked me to help him lead those efforts," Zipperer said. "Though I will be doing it from a new position, I intend to continue to work every day to help point our state toward an even brighter future.”

Zipperer, who has a law degree from Georgetown University, served as chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner prior to his election to the state Assembly in 2006.

The announcement is one of several changes in Walker's staff announced today. Previous deputy chief of staff Ryan Murray is leaving to become the chief operating officer of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., while DOA spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster is leaving that post to become the guv's communications director.
