Gov. Scott Walker appointed Robert Papke of Sturgeon Bay to the Wisconsin Judicial Commission for a term ending Aug. 1, 2021. The commission investigates and prosecutes allegations of misconduct or disability on the part of Wisconsin judges. It is a nine-member body consisting of four appointees of the Supreme Court (two judges and two attorneys), along with five gubernatorial appointees. Papke said he is pleased to serve in this citizen capacity and that his background in law enforcement, government and business gives him a wide perspective regarding judicial overview. Papke is currently serving on the commission and this is a reappointment. He previously served as an appointee of Gov. Tommy Thompson on the Judicial Commission from 1993 to 2001.
