Waupaca County district attorney resigning
Isherwood leaving effective Dec. 17
Waupaca County District Attorney Veronica Isherwood announced her plans to resign effective Dec. 17.
For the past two years Isherwood has been involved in an ongoing dispute with Sheriff Tim Wilz regarding changes made to reports sent to her office for prosecution.
In August, Judge Raymond Huber appointed a special prosecutor to review an investigation into the conduct of Wilz and some of his administrative staff.
The Waupaca County Post was unable to reach Isherwood for comment in time for this week’s paper because she was out of town.
Hired as an assistant district attorney in Waupaca County in the summer of 2014, Isherwood was elected as Waupaca County’s district attorney in 2016 and re-elected four years later.
Gov. Tony Evers announced Monday that he is seeking applicants for Waupaca County district attorney.
The new district attorney will serve for the remainder of Isherwood’s unexpired term that ends January 2025.
To apply, email a completed application form and supporting materials to [email protected] Applications must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11.
The application is available on the “Apply to Serve” page of Gov. Evers’ website at www.evers.wi.gov.
