A handful of Door County Supervisors is taking advantage of an opportunity to see how the federal government operates. Five county board members along with the county clerk and register of deeds will be attending the Wisconsin County Executives and County Supervisors White House Conference on May 23. Joel Gunnlaugsson, who represents Liberty Grove and Washington Island, shares what he is looking forward to most at the conference.
Gunnlaugsson says each supervisor receives a $450 per person expense allowance for two days and must make their own flight and accommodation bookings. Other supervisors making the trip include Nancy Robillard, Helen Bacon, Jon Koch, Door County Board Chair Dave Lienau.
