A Letter from Chairman Schulteis


    County Board Chairman, Rick Gundrum, officially took office as the 58th Assembly District representative on February 7, 2018 at the impressively restored Washington Co. Old Courthouse Museum. Rick was elected to the position previously held by Assemblyman Bob Gannon. Rick has the experience from holding office at the local level, (Village of Slinger), Washington Co. as Chairman, and now being able to take the qualities he has developed to Madison to act as our Representative. Congratulations Rick.

         On February 2, Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel held a Law Enforcement Roundtable discussion at the Washington Co Sheriff’s Dept., inviting law enforcement and community leaders, to get an overview of specific challenges concerning prescription drug and heroin abuse spreading throughout our society and how it is affecting services provided by the County Social Services, Court System, Emergency services, Police and Sheriff’s Dept. The issue can rear its debilitating head in any segment of society. Watch out for each other. No one is exempt from having a friend, colleague or family member caught in this addiction crossfire. Attorney General Schimel is visiting all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties, collecting feedback on “what works” and “what’s needed”.

            The applications for shared revenue on Local Road Improvement Projects have been submitted to the State of Wisconsin plus alternative road projects are being reviewed by the Board. Our Town, like all others, never seem to run out of roads that need attention. As information comes to us we will share.


Respectfully submitted,

Albert Schulteis , Chairman
