MEET PAUL CARPENTER

Building a safer community won’t be an easy task. Right now, our community is at its wit’s end with uncertainty. We need leaders who have the experience it takes to make the right decisions that keep us safer, without wasting tax payer dollars practicing until they get it right. We don’t need a politician to divide us. We need someone that will get their hands dirty and help us build. Paul Carpenter has served this community as the Assistant State’s Attorney for 9.5 years. Paul has been a consistent advocate of using our legal system to place violent offenders behind bars fast! 

Paul’s Plan will also return non-violent offenders to the workforce saving our community valuable time and money. The people of Winnebago County deserve a plan that works!
