Attorney Frank Appointed to Advisory Council by Wisconsin Governor-Elect Tony Evers
Attorney Matt Frank has been appointed to the Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform Policy Advisory Council by Wisconsin Governor-Elect Tony Evers, as announced in a press release on December 10, 2018. Matt is a former Wisconsin Justice Department prosecutor and served as Secretary of the Department of Corrections from 2003 through 2007. Governor-Elect Evers has asked the Council, which brings together people from all sides of the criminal justice system, to work with his transition team to explore solutions for criminal justice reform. In the press release, Governor-Elect Evers said, “We have to start prioritizing people, not prisons. In Wisconsin, African-Americans are ten times more likely to be imprisoned than white people, and we spend more on corrections than on our entire UW System. Red states like Texas have passed comprehensive criminal justice reform, and I know Republicans and Democrats can work together to get it done here in Wisconsin.“
Matt’s legal practice focuses primarily on environmental law, in addition to working with Wisconsin start-ups.
