Legislator gives up sick pay

Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) announced that she will return about $45,000 in sick pay that can be converted into a retirement health benefit credit. On November 25, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel broke the story about how Wisconsin legislators have been building up sick pay instead of using it appropriately.

Although I do not typically agree with Senator Darling’s political decisions, I give her a lot of credit for her decision on this issue. I think it shows that she has integrity and is willing to do what is right for the taxpayers. I hope more state officials realize the importance of Senator Darling’s actions and this issue.
