Wisconsin Governor-elect Tony Evers has announced that he won’t resign as the Superintendent of Public Instruction until he is sworn in as governor on January 7.
Evers has been state superintendent since 2009 and was most recently elected to a four-year term in 2017. If Evers resigned earlier, current Governor Scott Walker could appoint a successor. However, since Evers isn’t stepping down until his inauguration, he will be able to appoint his own replacement.
The appointee will hold the position of state superintendent until April 2021.
