Have you ever thought of participating in local government? Here's an opportunity to find out what happens at the county level. What is it like to serve on a county board? What does a county board supervisor do? The League of Women Voters of the Northwoods will host a panel of county board supervisors on Thursday, November 16th beginning at 6:00 pm at the Minocqua Public Library in the Community Room.
Representatives from the Lincoln, Oneida, and Vilas County Boards will be participating: Patricia 'Pat' Voermans in her first term in Lincoln County; Bob Mott who has served 6 years in Oneida County; and Erv Teichmiller a long time Vilas County Supervisor. This panel will talk about why they decided to run for office at the county level; what the job entails; what they have learned about service; and some of the issues facing a county board.
