Janelle Rettig for Johnson County Board of Supervisors

Team Teal at 4th of July Parades

I’m Janelle Rettig.   I’m currently serving on the Johnson County Board of Supervisors (2011-2014).

I work hard, listen, find common ground, and demand fiscal responsibility.  In addition to an efficient county government, I value human services, quality of life issues, protecting our environment, and building and maintaining good roads, bridges and trails.  I believe we must continually work on diversifying our economy, by investing in high quality economic development and value-added agriculture.

For almost 25 years, I have been active and involved in our County.  I’ve served on commissions at the city, county and state levels.  I’ve worked for state and federal government, for non-profits, owned my own business, and have volunteered for numerous local organizations.

I enjoy meeting many people and listening to everyone's ideas and thoughts.  Please contact me at any time to talk about Johnson County.   My cell phone is 319-330-0916.  (I text message, as well.)
