My name is Kelly Schremp and I am running for Marathon County Clerk of Court. I am a lifelong resident of Marathon County and am passionate about making a difference in the community I grew up in.
I have had the pleasure of working for Marathon County for 12 years. I started working as a Court Clerk and was promoted to Judicial Assistant within 6 months. In 2015, I was promoted to the position of Administrative Supervisor. I was happy with my role as Supervisor, but within a year my ascent up the administrative ladder took me to the position of Chief Deputy Clerk of Court. In 2021, I was appointed to my current role as Acting Clerk of Court.
I live in the Village of Rothschild and have been happily married to Retired Police Chief, Bill Schremp, for 29 years. Community service has always been a passion and priority for our family. Bill and I have been blessed with a beautiful, blended family of 4 adult children. Our sons Greg & Jeff are active Law Enforcement Officers in the Marathon County area. Our son Nick is former military and is currently a Paraprofessional in Virginia, working towards his teaching degree in Special Education. Our daughter Cory is a successful hairdresser in the area. Our family has continued to grow! Bill and I now have 7 grandchildren that keep us on our toes!
My experience at all levels of the Clerk of Court system has given me a unique perspective on what it takes to manage and maintain a flourishing Clerk of Court’s office. I have set achievable goals to improve our office. Some of those goals are, continuing the process of updating technology in the courtrooms and working with the Judges and court staff to alleviate the current backlog of pending court cases. I believe the continued use of technology in the courtrooms will increase the efficiency of the courts. Lastly, I will continue to maintain a professional, efficient, and positive culture within the Clerk of Court’s office.
The last 8 months as your acting Clerk of Court has been my honor. I am dedicated to my staff and the citizens of Marathon County. I will work hard to improve the way we do business. When elected, I will continue to persevere and proudly serve the citizens of Marathon County as your Clerk of Court.
Thank you for your support!
Acting Clerk of Court
