TOWN OF SHERMAN — Paul A. Heifner is running for Supervisor 1 in the Town of Sherman in the April 2 election against incumbent supervisor Charles Maves.
Heifner, age 67, and his wife, Marilyn, have two children, Trisha Schaff (Nick) and Dennis Heifner (Beth).
The Tribune Press Reporter sent out a questionnaire to Heifner, and here are his answers:
• What is your occupation? — Beef and crop farmer. Retired after 39 years at Swiss Miss in Menomonie. Held various positions before retirement including maintenance supervisor.
• What is your educational background? — High school diploma and technical college classes.
• What experience do you have as an elected official? — Spent six years on the Stanton Town Board then moved to Sherman township. I am currently on the Boyceville Area Snojammers snowmobile and ATV club board.
• Why did you decide to run for town chair? — The board needs to listen to the electors, be respectful and representative of those concerns.
• What makes you particularly suited to serve on the town board? — Being on the Stanton Town Board and supervisory experience helps with listening and making decisions on the constituents’ concerns. I have the integrity to make this happen.
• What do you believe are the biggest challenges facing your township? — Keeping the board transparent. Keeping taxes down while keeping services up.
• What do you hope to accomplish serving as chair of the Town of Sherman? — Allowing the board to be flexible by having voters elect Chase Potter as chairman; Amanda Klosterman and Paul Heifner as supervisors. We will be able to schedule meetings when more people can attend. Getting the website running so voters can access information and the minutes (approved and unapproved). At that point, we can have valuable discussion before approval. With your help and votes, we can make the Town of Sherman the business we expect while keeping the rural philosophies the voters have enjoyed in the past.
