Wenzler files for Iowa County Board race
Jim Wenzler filed his campaign paperwork to run for the Iowa County Board in District 2. "I believe in public service, and I look forward to the voters giving me a chance to show them things can get better."
In a time when the Wisconsin State Journal is running Op Ed, pieces on worrying that few incumbents are being challenged in Dane County, Jim opined, "It is a good time for people to finally realize that the politicians in office now, just keep raising their taxes and doing the opposite of what is needed to make things better."
"I realize that this election many people in the township want to vote for someone they think they know and were told to vote for, but I am asking voters to give me a chance, because the politician in there now, and the one before him, really never wanted the job, and I do," Wenzler said. "My family has lived here for many decades and I was asked again by my neighbors to run and I want to win, because I want to show people you don't have to keep voting for the same kind of politician."
Wenzler serves in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary as a Staff Officer for Human Resources. He is a 20 year human resources professional and has also served on the Wisconsin State Auctioneer Board, the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene and the State Supreme Court Lawyer Disciplinary Committee.
"I really see that a term limits ordinance is something I would like to accomplish," Wenzler said. "It is really important for us to interact with the community, as County Supervisors. So many people feel powerless that the County Board is going to just do what they want to do and we can't do anything to change that." I also want to repeal the Wheel tax.
The Wenzler campaign strongly believes that the County Board Supervisor needs to actually go out and meet people in their homes and talk to them at their kitchen table. He just doesn't agree when current members of the County Board tell people, to go out of their way, to attend County Board or Committee meetings to find out what the Board is doing. He thinks a supervisor is elected to do more, much more.
