People Focused Schoemann Campaign Displays its Grassroots Strength

Campaign knocks 1000th door; announces over 850 endorsements.

West Bend, WI — In his bid to be Washington County’s first executive, Josh Schoemann boasts an impressive conservative grassroots campaign. Earlier this month, he turned in well over 1000 signatures with the help of more than 50 volunteers. On Saturday, January 25, the campaign also knocked its 1000th door

“I am proud of the volunteer team our campaign has become,” stated Schoemann. “But, our work is just beginning. This is the first time voters will choose the leader of county government and many voters do not realize this race is on the April ballot. Between now and April 7, our campaign will continue to knock doors, make phone calls, drop literature, and organize for conservative candidates up and down the ballot.”

Schoemann has also announced over 850 endorsers, including Sheriff Marty Schulteis.

“Josh is a fierce advocate of the Sheriff’s Office to keep our communities safe,” said the sheriff. “Josh’s 2020 budget sent every dollar of new property tax revenue, and then some, to adequately fund public safety. The effective partnership between the County Administration, County Board, and Sheriff’s Office showcases Josh’s strong leadership. There’s much more we are poised to accomplish in collaboration with Josh’s leadership, and I hope the residents in Washington County see that great things are on the horizon with him as County Executive.”

Town of Hartford Supervisor Scott Lofy also provided his wholehearted support of the Schoemann campaign saying, “I am supporting Josh because he is a straight shooter and will serve as a good check and balance on the county board. He is the most experienced and the best-prepared candidate to come to work on his first day and put the people ahead of the politics. I hope you will join me in voting for Josh so he can continue serving the taxpayers in this new capacity.”

Schoemann will be meeting voters at The Hub in West Bend on Friday, January 31 from 7am-9am for Coffee with Josh. This is the first of many events for voters to directly connect with the candidate to discuss his platform. Josh is committed to running a people focused campaign.
