MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Retired Judge Tim Vocke was chosen Monday as the new chairman of the state Government Accountability Board.
Vocke is one of six members of the panel that operates Wisconsin elections, and investigates government ethics violations. His name was pulled from a vase, and he’ll lead the board for the next year.
Vocke replaces David Deininger as the chairman.
Vocke, of Rhinelander, was a Vilas County circuit judge from 1979 to ’83. Since then, he’s been a reserve, a mediator for medical malpractice cases, and a referee for the State Supreme Court. He’s been retired from the law profession since 2009.
