Ed added, “I am a proven leader with experience administering multi-million dollar budgets. I look forward to meeting with citizens of the district, listening to their concerns and working with local and state leaders to develop jobs and build a sound economic foundation.”
In addition to serving as Chief of Police for the Village of Pewaukee, Ed was a successful coach at Waukesha Catholic Memorial High School and subsequently inducted into the Wisconsin High School Football Coaches’ Hall of Fame.” Former player and business entrepreneur Bryan Waltersdorf noted, “Coach Bauman was instrumental in helping me develop as a player, but more importantly establishing the groundwork and framework for many former players, including myself, to be contributing citizens of the community and professional successes.”
