March 23, 2020 – Hartford, WI – Josh Schoemann has impressed me with his ability to work collaboratively, not only with other municipalities, but how he interacts with our county employees.
You see, Josh respects and appreciates all employees. We are only as good as those who provide services for our citizens. County employees understand that they are public servants first and foremost, and strive to make every contact with citizens a positive one.
During this time of crisis, county employees have offered to serve in whatever capacity they are needed. Josh is directly responsible for creating a culture of mutual respect county-wide. Your county will continue to serve you and share services, including human resources, with each municipality in Washington County.
Josh has shown his true colors, sacrificing his time and energy to put Washington County in the best situation to handle the coronavirus outbreak. I was impressed with the planning, especially as this pandemic so quickly transformed from a news story about an outbreak in China, to a world pandemic affecting all of us. Rest assured, Josh will do whatever it takes to keep our citizens safe and has assembled a team that will meet whatever challenge arises.
As a paid-on-call firefighter with Hartford, and member of the Public Safety committee, I understand what a challenge it is to undertake hazardous assignments and how difficult it is to change direction at a moment’s notice. Josh Schoemann is ideally suited to lead Washington County into the future, in good times or bad. I am so thankful that Josh is leading the charge during this emergency. I heartily endorse Josh and ask you to please support him with your vote on or before April 7.
James Burg, Washington County Supervisor, District 18

- Just because your comment doesn’t show up right away doesn’t mean you’re being censored. When you post a comment it must first go through our filtering software. If it fails, your comment goes into a queue for manual approval.
- Just because a comment or advertisement is on the site, doesn’t mean WCI endorses it.
- The above rules are not intended to stop criticism or dissenters, but rather to stop those who are incapable of participating in a civilized manner.
*Trolling: a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll’s amusement.
