PORT WASHINGTON — Janette Braverman was confirmed as the newest member of the Ozaukee County Board this week.

Braverman took the oath of office during the board’s meeting Wednesday, and will now represent District 24, which covers the southwest portion of Mequon. The seat was vacated shortly after the April election with the death of Irena Macek. Four people expressed interest in the vacant seat, though Macek had run uncontested in the last two elections.

Because the term is already underway, the seat is filled by appointment rather than election. Braverman and the other candidates applied for the position and interviewed with Ozaukee County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt.

“We had four really good candidates,” Schlenvogt said.

Braverman is a process leader with Rockwell Automation. In May, Braverman had actually pulled her name out of the running briefly and then resubmitted herself; she said she had some hesitation about whether she could attend County Board and committee obligations with her work schedule.

“My boss told me to just go for it,” Braverman said Wednesday.

During the election season, Braverman ran for a Mequon Common Council seat against former alderman John Wirth. It was Braverman’s first political bid, and though she did not win in Mequon, she will now have the chance to serve on the County Board.
