At least no one’s starving

Janet Piraino — former state director for U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, a Madison Democrat — will replace Doug Hill, who was demoted as Baldwin’s director of state operations in March.

Baldwin, a Wisconsin Democrat, bumped Hill from that $131,000-a-year post after a report commission by Baldwin was critical of her staff’s handling of complaints about problems at the Tomah VA Medical Center. Hill was made Baldwin’s outreach coordinator, a job that pays $80,800 annually.
