Voters kept Wisconsin’s treasurer position but what’s next?

"The BCPL should not be in the business of solving the student loan crisis — it’s not what it was designed to do,” she said. “The risk does not outweigh the potential reward for something like this.” 

Kaump, communications director for the treasurer's office from 2012 to 2015, wants to bring back many of the duties the office has lost over the years to other agencies, including managing the Edvest college savings program and the state's unclaimed property program.

"Day one we have to start working on the budget ... and getting the programs transferred back which are unconstitutionally being administered elsewhere, because that is the best service to the people of Wisconsin,” Kaump said.
