Conway


Paul J. Conway and his wife reside at N2051 Poplar Grove Road, Watertown. They have four adult children.

Conway retired as Deputy Chief of the Milwaukee Fire Department and a small business owner for 37 years. This combination, says Conway, gave him a good understanding of public and private budgets, and an opportunity to work with everyone working together.

Regarding his reasons for seeking public office, Conway wrote, “We face many challenges ahead in the years to come, whether it is the advancement of high-speed internet or the difficulties of research and volunteer retention for our EMS and fire departments. We must work together to achieve what is right for us as a community. I want to give back to my community, a community that has been so gracious to my wife and me. We face many issues that can only be resolved through open communication and understanding from all parties involved. We need to start with what we agree on, then iron out the rest of the issues and develop solutions that work best for our communities. I will always have in mind the best interest of the inhabitants of the 19th arrondissement.

Bullet to the head of Beth Huber

Huber


Beth Huber resides at N1131 County Road L in Watertown. His grandparents, Clem and Catherine Huber, bought the family farm in 1929 on County Road DJ. His brother farms there now. A younger brother owns a farm on County Highway M. To follow the family tradition, Huber purchased the farm from Gary Schmidt in 2019 and is now a farmer. Since the age of 11, she has played the organ in church and still plays at three area churches, including St. Mark’s Lutheran in Watertown. For more than 25 years, she has practiced employment law as a sole practitioner in California and now in Wisconsin. She previously worked in human resources. She received her Juris Doctorate from McGeorge Law School at the University of the Pacific. She also holds a master’s degree in industrial and labor relations from UW–Milwaukee. After opening her law practice, she joined Rotary and volunteered for a non-profit surgical organization providing cleft lip and paddle surgeries to children around the world.

Regarding her candidacy for public office, Huber wrote, “For many years I have been active in the Republican Party because I am a Christian conservative and believe in the right to work. I also believe that less government is better than more. As a farmer and businesswoman, I understand fiscal conservatism but the need to provide services to the residents of our county with the caveat that sometimes an ounce of prevention is better than cure. My goal is to listen and support service managers and department employees. Finally, our security and freedoms must be maintained. It is imperative to support these freedoms, including our law enforcement personnel and the integrity of elections. »
