County Executive Josh Schoemann
"I'm running for re-election because Washington County deserves an Executive who will always put the people first. I am committed to investing in our kids and our future so the next generation has the same opportunity and the same great community that we've all had."
A Commitment to Service and Action
Josh and his wife, Jodi, live on a farm in the Town of Trenton where they grow lavender and raise chickens. They have two sons, Cael and Drake, and are active members of Peace Lutheran Church in Hartford. A veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, he served in the Army National Guard and was honorably discharged in 2008. He used the G.I. Bill to earn a Masters of Public Administration.
Josh has always set his priorities to get things done. He has shrunk county government in every metric: Lowest tax rate since before World War I, lower tax levy, and fewer government employees.
Fighting for Washington County Residents to Achieve the American Dream
Your County: With the cost of living skyrocketing, Josh understands the challenges families face. By removing government red tape, he hopes to make living in Washington County sustainable and affordable.
Your Money: Every dollar that the government has is yours, not a politician’s or a bureaucrat’s. Josh is committed to investing your hard-earned taxpayer dollars into our highest priorities: Public safety, county roads, economic growth, and mental health services.
Your Executive: Josh is a seventh generation Washington County resident. He has dedicated his life to public service, and is your voice to elevate the people over bureaucracy and institutions.
