Renee Schoen announces candidacy for Clark treasurer post
Renee Schoen has announced her candidacy for the position of Clark County treasurer.
Schoen has been employed by Clark County for 21 years, the last 18 years in the county treasurer’s office as the real property lister (aka tax lister).
Schoen said she performs many duties in the office.
“My primary task is to keep accurate records of ownership,” she said. “Daily records are retrieved from recorded documents and processed accordingly. I also process all the Managed Forest Law orders and enter the manufacturing values issued by the state of Wisconsin.
Schoen said there are 12 assessors who work for the municipalities of Clark County. She provides them with tax rolls for Open Book and Board of Review. She also verifies values from several sources in order to achieve a final tax roll.
Schoen said she prints the real estate and personal property tax bills.
“Additional supplies are gathered for the tax season for the treasurers of the municipalities. I process tax payments and respond to many phone calls and emails from the public requesting information,” she said. “I thoroughly enjoy working with taxpayers, clerks, treasurers, assessors, surveyors, attorneys, and title companies that have requested my assistance.”
Schoen said her reason for running for this position is simple.
“I would like to bring the treasurer’s office back to the level of professionalism that was exhibited while the previous treasurer was in office,” she said.
Schoen was born and raised on a dairy farm in Loyal, the 16th child of Frank and Mildred Wolf. She and her husband raised six children on a small farm.
“Growing up on a farm gave our family many life lessons and instilled moral values that helped to lead happy and successful lives,” she said.
Schoen and her husband now live in the Christie area.
Clark County voters will elect a treasurer in November. If more than a minimum number of candidates file paperwork for the seat by the June deadline, a primary election will be held in August.
