SHEBOYGAN — Sheboygan County Sheriff Cory Roeseler confirmed to WKTS News on Tuesday he is running for a second term.

Roeseler, a Republican, was appointed Sheboygan County Sheriff by former Governor Scott Walker in 2017 to fill the term of Todd Priebe, who resigned to take a role in the private sector. The following year in 2018, Roeseler ran for a full term and was elected by a sizeable margin.

When asked why he is running for reelection, Roeseler said he loves his job. “I like to help others and the position of Sheriff allows me to help make our County a better place to live and visit.” He added there are several issues that he wants to continue to work. “The staffing issues we have in all areas of our agency is one challenge I hope to continue working on before I retire,” said Roeseler.

A resident of Sheboygan, Roeseler holds over 30 years of law enforcement experience. He began his career with the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office in 1991. He served as Captain of Patrol for twelve years before being appointed Sheriff by Governor Walker. Roeseler was also the Cascade Police Chief before leaving that role to become Sheriff.

“We are very proud of the way we have managed the budgeting challenges over the past few years, along with managing the overcrowding issues at our Detention Center,” said Roeseler. “Our staff did a great job mediating the COVID challenges and keeping our employees and inmates safe.”

Roeseler is self-financing his reelection campaign.
