Mark Gottlieb (born December 11, 1956) is an American civil engineer who served as a Republican Party member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, representing the 60th Assembly District[1] and is now Secretary of the Department of Transportation.

Background[edit]

Born in Milwaukee on December 11, 1956, Gottlieb graduated from James Madison High School (Milwaukee) in 1974, then served in the United States Navy from 1974-78. He earned B.S. (1981) and Master of Engineering (1984) degrees from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, and became a civil engineer.

Public office[edit]

Gottlieb served on the Port Washington Common Council 1991-1997 and then as mayor of Port Washington, Wisconsin from 1997-2003, and was first elected to the Assembly in 2002. He was elected Speaker Pro Tempore for the 2007-2008 legislative session.

When the Democratic Party took control of the Assembly after the 2008 elections, Gottlieb was elected Assistant Republican Leader for the 2009-2010 session.

In the 2009-2010 session, Gottlieb was the ranking member of the Joint Survey Committee on Retirement Systems and a member of the Joint Committee on Legislative Organization. He also served on the following Assembly committees: Rules, Urban and Local Affairs, and Colleges and Universities.

On December 30, 2010, Governor-elect Scott Walker announced that Gottlieb would serve in his cabinet as Secretary of the Department of Transportation.[2] Gottlieb resigned from the Assembly on January 3, 2011 to assume that position.[3]
