Former State Senator George Petak has opened a new consulting practice in government affairs and lobbying in Madison, Wisconsin.
Petak, elected to the Wisconsin State Senate in November, 1990, served from January, 1991 until June, 1996, when he lost a tough recall election called in protest of his casting the deciding vote for Miller Park in October, 1995.
Since 1998, Petak has established a prominent presence in the state capitol, having worked in significant public relations, government affairs, and lobbying practices in the Milwaukee and Madison markets. He also served as Deputy Executive Director for the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA), from 1996-1998.
He has developed a strong bipartisan approach to government affairs consulting, combining his years as an elected state senator with those of a seasoned lobbyist to best represent the interests of his clients in both the legislative and administrative arenas.
Petak said, “Tough economic times require that a capable, veteran voice be available to deliver a reasonable message to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and at every level of government. I am excited about new opportunities to provide that voice to the broad array of client prospects in the marketplace.”

Former Sen. George Petak opens consulting firm
Former Racine Sen. George Petak is opening a new consulting firm in Madison. Interesting to see Petak embracing his controversial vote in favor of Miller Park. The vote placed a 0.1 percent sales tax on Racine County to help pay for the Brewers' stadium.
