This barely made a blip in the media. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel stuffed it in a two inch column with no photo. This article is from the Wisconsin State Journal:

Gov. Tony Evers has picked for Wisconsin State Patrol superintendent a 30-year veteran of law enforcement who will be the first African-American to hold the post.

Maj. Anthony Burrell, who was recognized for his response to the 2015 shooting death of a state trooper, will take the post effective Sunday. He succeeds former Superintendent J.D. Lind, who retired last fall.

Evers, in a statement, cited Burrell’s “long and decorated history of public service.”

“Under his leadership, the Wisconsin State Patrol will continue to prioritize the safety of Wisconsinites and help build stronger communities,” Evers said.

    Congratulations Tony. I as a member of Fond du Lac Fire Rescue can attest to your professionalism. I know in your new position you will continue to do what’s right and expect the same from your troopers. During and after the Casper incident you were a ROCK.
