Waukesha County Supervisor Bill Kramer to step down from Board of Supervisors Election to state Assembly continues privilege of serving residents of Waukesha
Waukesha – Today, Waukesha County Supervisor and Representative-elect Bill Kramer announced he will be stepping down from his position as Waukesha County Supervisor effective January 31, 2007. Kramer was first elected to represent the 24th Supervisory District in April, 2004.
Bill Kramer was elected November 7th to serve the residents of the 97th Assembly District in the state legislature. He will be officially sworn in on January 3rd in Madison.
Representative-elect Bill Kramer remarked:
“Representing the residents of Waukesha on the County Board has been a tremendous honor and privilege. And it is with that sense of privilege that I head to Madison to continue to represent our community in the state Assembly.
During my time on the Waukesha County Board we have reduced per capita property taxes and have been able to reduce the size of the County Board in response to broad community support, and Waukesha County is providing services to its residents in a more cost-effective manner.
I am proud to have served on the County Board and look forward to working with my neighbors as we endeavor to make Waukesha and Wisconsin one of the best places in America to live, work, raise a family, and retire.”
Chairman of the County Board of Supervisors, Jim Dwyer, commented:
“Bill has been invaluable to this Board. I’ve asked him to remain in the position until the end of January so that we have time to appoint someone to the seat that will represent the citizens of the 24th District with the same vigor and distinction as Bill has.
I wish him all the best in his new position representing the citizens of the 97th Assembly District and know he will do a tremendous job.”
