What some people might call a problem, Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt calls an opportunity to make a difference. Feldt is entering his fourth year as county administrator after previously serving as a deputy state treasurer, an economic development director and executive assistant to a supply company CEO. Feldt says he wanted to be in public service as a youngster. He enjoys finding solutions to problems such as manure application ordinances that benefit farmers and property owners.
Scott Feldt highly recommends public administration as a career although it requires having a thick skin. Feldt says be prepared for hearing from other people who’ll second guess your decisions and tell you how they could do the job better.
