Born and raised in Monona, Andrew attended school in the Monona Grove School District and earned spending money by mowing neighbors’ lawns, waking up early to deliver papers, and teaching swim lessons at the Monona Community Pool. After graduating from high school, Andrew earned his bachelor's degree from Ripon College before heading to Gettysburg, PA, to start his development career in higher education. While working, he earned his Master of Education from Vanderbilt University. After working at liberal arts colleges for six years, Andrew joined the county commissioners in Montgomery County, PA, working to provide residents with greater accessibility to human services, increase public safety measures, develop systems to reduce recidivism rates for ex-offenders, acquire alternative energy vehicles for the county’s fleet, and also helped to implement the county’s first-ever zero-based budget. In 2014, Andrew moved back to Monona with his wife, Laura, and their dog, Bodie, where they see the value of a connected and supportive community. Andrew currently works at the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association as a director of development and is serving his first term as Alder on the Monona City Council.
Andrew serves on the following city committees, boards and commissions: Community Development Authority, Parks & Recreation Committees, Library Board and Tourism Commission.

Ensure Quality Services
Monona offers remarkable amenities to residents, with our first rate public safety departments, parks and recreation programs, library, and senior center activities. We need to continue to foster an inclusive community that is safe and active.
Promote Responsible Redevelopment
I want to continue to guide and improve redevelopment opportunities throughout the city. Keeping the Riverfront development moving, while also looking to other potential opportunities in the city, will strengthen the business base in Monona.
Push Monona to Lead by Example
I believe Monona is and can continue to be an example to other communities throughout the country. By initiating sustainable practices, developing safe pedestrian and bicycle routes, or promoting quality of life and work with city employees, Monona can lead by example.
