2018-2020 Supervisors taking the Oath of Office

37 Members of the Dane County board were sworn in on Tuesday, April 17, 2018. 7 members took their seats in the City-County Building for the first time. Supervisor Corrigan was re-elected as the board chair, Supervisor Dye as the first vice chair, and Supervisor Pertl as the second vice chair. 

As luck would have it, it was my turn to provide the inspiration to start the meeting. I was grateful to have a chance to talk about my inspiration for serving: heart, passion, and foundation. You can watch the entire meeting at this link

Each Supervisor is assigned one standing committee out of: 1.) Zoning and Land Regulation, 2.) Executive (county board chairperson, the first vice-chairperson, and one member from each of the standing committees), 3.) Personnel & Finance, 4.) Health & Human Needs, 5.) Public Protection & Judiciary, 6.) Public Works & Transportation, 7.) Environment, Agriculture & Natural Resources.

On Friday, I learned that I have been assigned to the Health and Human Needs Committee. The mission of HHN is what inspired me to run for county board, and I am eager to get to work with my colleagues. I also look forward to serving on the UW-Extension Committee, and learning more about the ways the UW-Extension has helped county supervisors host engagement/listening sessions in their districts.

This week I am looking forward to learning more about the County Executive's appointments and where I might best serve the county and District 24 well.
