John Hauser made a secondary career in education, not as a teacher, but as a member of the Sturgeon Bay Board of Education. Hauser spent nearly 20-years during two different times as a board member. He says he first ran with a desire to make sure students had the best education possible. Hauser says he knew the district was on track at the end of every school year.
Hauser says during his tenure on the board of education it became more challenging with changes in state funding. He says that meant taking a new approach to ensuring quality education continued.
And Hauser says convincing voters that the district was spending money wisely was made easier by a very supportive community.
