Voting Jansen for Clayton County Supervisor

 

Jansen is top candidate for Supervisor  
Gary Siegwarth    Elkader/St. Olaf   

Joleen Jansen may very well be one of the most qualified candidates for Board of Supervisor in the history of Clayton County. I've known Joleen for 25 years and have personally worked with her on a number of projects. She is very hard working, honest, motivated, open minded, dedicated, creative, and follows through with what she says. Our county is one of the most unique and diverse areas of Iowa. We need a candidate that fully recognizes the full potential of Clayton County. I know and respect each of the candidates, but believe Joleen is by far the most qualified. She is not afraid to address tough issues facing our county and recognizes the value of our natural resources. I hope voters take the time to talk with her, and look over her qualifications, contributions and achievements before casting your vote.

We’ve known Joleen and her family for many years as a church member and neighbor. She is honest, trustworthy and transparent with the ability to listen and consider other viewpoints. She works seamlessly as a leader and committee member and always completes jobs she starts. We see her as always working to make life better for others.

Joleen has established a successful business that has benefited all the communities of Clayton County while being an active member in community and church activities. Joleen has been employed by county governments in Dubuque and Winneshiek Counties, and was a member of Central Community School Board for three terms.
We think Joleen would make a very good county supervisor. We encourage you to vote for her.

Joleen Jansen Will Work for the Common Good  
Russell Loven *    Guttenberg

Joleen Jansen, Democratic candidate for Clayton County Supervisor, says her goal is to be “Working For The Common Good of Clayton County” for the next four years. Her slogan for the campaign and her well rounded career speak loud and clear as to the kind of public servant we all want in Clayton County.

The people of Clayton County are in general fiscally conservative, and Joleen is committed to maintaining a fiscally sound budget. However, she has a vision to use the county’s resources for the good of all who live in Clayton County. She has a passion for moving Clayton County’s economic development and job creation in a positive direction.

Joleen is well educated and has a multi-faceted job resume that will make sure that Clayton County government works for the “Common Good of All Who Live Here”. Professionally she has been a Sanitarian for the City of Dubuque, and for Winneshiek County, as well as a Zoning Administrator. At the present time she has her own High Tech Company which does Web Design, Hosting, Print Materials and Media Transfer, and she generates You-Tubes for web pages.

In addition her busy life has time for being a community volunteer such as past member on the Central Board of Education for three terms, and she is a Faith Education Instructor at St. Joseph’s in Elkader. Joleen, also, is dedicated to conserving and intensifying the importance of the natural resources of our beautiful county. She presently is a member of the Clayton County Conservation Awareness Network (CAN), and is on the Clayton County Energy District Board.

This active life still leaves time for being a wife, mother of three from high school to college. Her balanced life still leaves time for raising pumpkins, running, hunting and fishing.

Please join me and my wife in voting November 8 for Joleen Jansen as our newest County Supervisor. We haven’t known Joleen very long, but we have met with her to discuss her vision, and can honestly say we are impressed and trust her. Her experiences and character will be a breath of fresh air in leading this great county forward.

Russ Loven ~ Mayor of Guttenberg

For the last three months, there has been only one supervisor candidate coming to the our meetings to be become informed, and to understand what we do for the county as supervisors. That candidate is Joleen Jansen. I believe she will come in ready to serve the citizens of Clayton County with knowledge of the supervisor position.

Joleen is Qualified  

Joleen's background more than qualifies her for the Board of Supervisors. She knows the county and the people in it. She would bring fresh air to a Board that needs it badly - time for new ideas and a real dedication to doing what is right for the citizens of the county!

Most qualified candidate for the supervisor's office  

Joleen is clearly the most qualified candidate for the Supervisor's office. She has prepared herself for the position by studying county issues, attending supervisor's meetings and serving in other public capacities. Clayton County has a a clear opportunity to bring accountability to county government and professionalize an important county position. I urge my fellow county residents to vote for Joleen Jansen and give her the opportunity to lead and improve the county we love.
