To the Editor:
Waukesha County residents have an opportunity to vote on Aug. 14 and advance an experienced county clerk candidate to the general election on Nov. 6. We need to elect a county clerk who not only has experience in running elections, but has the additional skills and leadership qualities to successfully run the county clerk’s office.
Out of the three candidates running, only one has 25 years of election experience in this County and that is Kathy Karalewitz (the other candidates only have a combined three years of experience!). In Kathy’s 25 years of public service, she has spent eight years as the Waukesha County deputy clerk and 14 years as a municipal clerk. She has experience in budget planning and management, human resource management and strategic planning and procurement at both the municipal and county government level. She understands the process, and understands how to get things done. Kathy is a certified municipal clerk and a certified election inspector trainer with the WI Government Accountability Board.
Kathy Karalewitz is the only candidate on the Aug. 14 ballot who has the knowledge and experience to walk into the job and start fixing the current issues in the clerk’s office on day one. This county needs to move forward and restore the trust and integrity in our election process and in our county clerk’s office by electing an experienced clerk candidate. Please vote K. Karalewitz on Aug. 14.
