I am very pleased to announce that we have added three new Elections Specialists to our staff at the Wisconsin Elections Commission.  They will fill some of the positions that have become vacant since our agency transition.  We have additional existing vacancies, and filling those positions will depend upon whether the state budget enacted by the Legislature authorizes the continuation of those positions.

Following is a brief introduction to the new members of our staff:

Robert Williams joined us on April 17, 2017 as an Elections Administration Specialist.  Robert brings a variety of experience, including working as an International Recruiting Consultant for Edgewood College, spending two years in China as a Foreign Language Instructor, and working in retail.  He graduated from Edgewood College in Madison with a B.S. in history. 

Gregory Grube started with the Elections Commission as our GIS Specialist on May 1, 2017.  Greg has worked with GIS data for several federal, state and local agencies, most recently as GIS Analyst for the City of Janesville.  He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Arts degree as a double major in geography and political science, and also earned a GIS Graduate Certificate from UW-Madison.

Sara Linski will join us on May 15, 2017 as a WisVote Specialist.  Sara comes to us from Epic Systems in Madison, where she was a Project Manager assisting health care providers with the implementation of Epic technology systems.  She graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in health and human physiology.

I am very grateful for our staff who pitched in with extra effort while we have managed several elections and various projects while these positions remained vacant.  We are excited to add Robert, Greg and Sara to our staff as they will make excellent contributions.  They look forward to working with all of our partners and customers, and I am confident that they will continue the excellent level of support and assistance which local election officials have come to expect from our staff.
