Election Taking Place:
Employee Trust Funds (ETF) Board – Annuitant Member

Balloting is taking place for an election to select the annuitant member of the ETF Board. All Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) annuitants have received - or will soon receive - a packet from ETF containing an official ballot, voting instructions, candidate information and a return envelope. Four candidates are vying for the post, which has a five-year term beginning May 1, 2011.

The candidates are as follows:

Philip Evenson, Brookfield
William Ford, Prairie du Sac
Kathleen Kreul, Highland
Dennis Panicucci, Hartford

Ballots must be cast by Friday, February 4 in order to be counted.

Please note:

  • ETF cannot give advice on which candidate you should choose.

  • The materials bear an Illinois postmark because that is the location of the mail fulfillment company that submitted the lowest bid to distribute and tabulate the ballots. ETF is required to contract with the vendor with the lowest bid. No Wisconsin companies submitted a bid for the election project.

  • This is an election to select an ETF Board member only. You are not voting to elect someone to the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB), the separate state agency that invests the assets of the Wisconsin Retirement System.

  • Learn more about the ETF Board, its members and their duties and responsibilities.
