For Outagamie County Executive
These days, “politics” is a dirty word. Is there any wonder? The name-calling. The phony promises. The outright lies. If you’re like me, you have to ask, how does anything get done?
I know of only one way: By hard work. I’m committed to putting in the time and uniting people toward one goal: Making Outagamie County the best place in Wisconsin.
I’ll focus on managing operations, not playing politics. I’ll leave the politics to the folks in Madison and Washington.
The work starts with fiscal responsibility. I learned valuable lessons as Chairman of the Outagamie County Finance Committee and I’m confident I can bring that experience to the job.
During my time as Finance Chair, I helped the county through the complex budget process and found ways to lower property taxes. I believe elected officials owe fiscal responsibility to taxpayers.
Together we will maintain what we have and improve where we can. Getting this done is a big job and I can’t do it alone. Together we can. I need your help. I’m running for the office of Outagamie County Executive and I’m asking for your vote. Thank you to everyone for the encouragement and support. I sincerely appreciate it.
