Brown County Board of Supervisors Chairman and Ashwaubenon Village Clerk-Treasurer Patrick W. Moynihan, Jr. announced his campaign today as a Republican candidate for Brown County Clerk in the November 3rd, 2020 election. The five-term County Board Chairman, who has served District #22 (Ashwaubenon, De Pere, and Lawrence) on the Brown County Supervisors for over 18 years, made his announcement following Incumbent Brown County Clerk Sandy Juno’s decision not to seek re-election. Moynihan also announced that he is not running for re-election to the Brown County Board of Supervisors in April 2020 to focus on his candidacy for County Clerk.
“I am running for County Clerk because I believe it’s imperative that we protect our most sacred part of being a democracy, which is to guarantee secure, fair, and transparent elections,” said Moynihan. “I have the necessary experience and strong relationships with my constituents, our Board of Supervisors, and the municipal governments to carry out the vital functions of the County Clerk in a way that delivers efficient and timely services to all Brown County residents.”
Moynihan has served as the Ashwaubenon Village Clerk-Treasurer since 2014, and is a dedicated member of the Wisconsin Municipal Clerk’s Association, Municipal Treasurers of Wisconsin, and Project Vote. He also holds the designation of Wisconsin Certified Municipal Clerk from the Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association.
A United States Military veteran, Moynihan was honorably discharged as a Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and as a Specialist Four in the U.S. Army National Guard. He is a member of the Ashwaubenon Historical Society, Ashwaubenon Business Association, Green Bay Moose Lodge #801, American Legion Post #518, and Friends of the Brown County Veterans Memorial, Inc.
Moynihan resides in the Village of Ashwaubenon with his bride, Sara Thompson.
