What his local paper has to say about his winning the award:

DNR's Halvorsen recognized with leadership award

Sounds like he's had a long and distinguished career, including public outreach and high-profile projects. Unfortunate if ogling his female co-worker and making remarks was a one-time thing; just desserts if he's been doing it all along.

With the history of the DNR leadership under Walker, I was wondering if his award was warranted.

I can understand that. And it's a damn shame, but that's totally on Walker and his cronies who dismantled the civil service merit system. I am sure that there are still a lot of good people there, but I'm a lot less sure that the most deserving get recognized and rewarded. It wasn't always like that, as recently as two terms ago. It's not fair that state employees are now under the cloud of partisanship.
