As the Chief Administrative Officer, I provide executive management and oversight to all operations of Sheboygan County government.  This includes supervising department heads, developing and executing the annual budget, recommending organizational changes, assuring policies enacted by the County Board are carried out, and assuring fiscal and program accountability of services to the taxpayers of Sheboygan County. 

Sheboygan County is recognized as a leader of providing responsive and cost-effective local government.  The annual budget supports 19 departments, 825 employees, hundreds of contracted service providers and more than 200 programs.  Our programs and services include maintaining the safety of our highways and roads, law enforcement, protecting and enhancing natural resources, providing birth certificates and marriage licenses, land records, and critical health and human services for the mentally ill, elderly, physically disabled, children, and the financially poor.  We also operate a thriving airport and provide the facilities for the UW-Sheboygan campus, both vital to economic development.

I am proud of the excellent team we have in place and services we provide to the citizens of Sheboygan County.  I hope you will find this website informative and helpful in learning about Sheboygan County government, and we welcome your input and suggestions for improvement.
