County chairman, state representative first to enter contest for Grothman’s seat

Ozaukee County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt and state Rep. Duey Stroebel announced this week they are running for Glenn Grothman’s state Senate seat.

    Grothman was elected to Congress last week to succeed U.S. Rep. Tom Petri. Stroebel also ran for the congressional seat but finished third in the August Republican primary.

    For Schlenvogt, a dairy farmer from the Town of Port Washington who has been a fixture in local politics for 25 years, this is a first attempt at a state office.

    “The honest to God’s truth is that I’ve wanted to go to Madison since I was in high school,” he said. “I love politics.”

    Schlenvogt, 56, served as a Town of Port Washington supervisor for five years before becoming town chairman, a position he held from 1994 to 2011.

    He was appointed to the County Board in 2007 and elected in 2008.
