Former Walker aide takes job with lobbying firm

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The former second-in-command at Wisconsin’s job-creation agency has taken a job with a Milwaukee-based firm that lobbies for AT&T, Union Pacific Railroad and the Milwaukee Police Association.

The Firm Consulting announced Wednesday that Ryan Murray joined the company as a partner this week. Murray resigned last month as deputy secretary and chief operating officer at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.

He previously served as Gov. Scott Walker’s deputy chief of staff and worked for Republicans in the state Senate.

The Firm Consulting’s president Buddy Julius said Murray is a strategic addition to the company.

Other clients of the company include the Milwaukee Professional Fire Fighters Association, Cessna Aircraft Co. and Democrats for Education Reform, a group that supports public education.
