(Beaver Dam) The governor commented on his pick for Dodge County district attorney while at a stop in Beaver Dam last week. Tony Evers appointed Andrea Will to the position, filling the vacancy created when Kurt Klomberg resigned in January. During his tour of the Beaver Dam Middle School, we asked Evers about his choice.
“I was pleased to appoint her,” says Evers. “When I talked to her, she already had a plan on how to fill all those other jobs and so I knew that she would do a good job. She would get the people in place so that Dodge County DA’s office has a full staff…and I think she’s almost there. She’s a go-getter and she will do a great job for the people in Dodge County.”
One of Will’s first tasks as DA was to hire additional staff as the office saw a number of recent resignations. She brought on board four assistant district attorney’s as well as a managing attorney who is slated to start in July.
Before becoming top prosecutor in Dodge County, Will served as assistant district attorney in Washington County. The governor’s office says she has been the lead attorney on more than 25 jury trials including homicide, attempted homicide, arson, domestic violence, and white-collar crime cases.
