Jay was born in Clintonville, Wisconsin and has lived with his wife, Rebekah, and their four children on Lake Street in Neenah, Wisconsin for the last 9 years. While growing up, he was always hearing about the workings of government from his father, who was a member of the Waupaca County Board for 30 years. He remembers hearing about Waupaca County proposing a sales tax to build a court house with the promise of the sales tax being eliminated when the court house was paid off. That sales tax is still in place today, the promise of its elimination having never happened.
Prior to attending UW Stout, where Jay earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, he attended Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, where he earned an Associate Degree in Applied Science in real estate.
For the last 20 years, Jay has worked as a loan administrator, a perfect fit for Jay, who loves dealing with numbers and helping people finance their dream homes. He has also previously served as a City Council member and as the Town of Menasha Supervisor.
By helping people refinance their mortgages, Jay has helped one person or family at a time. By implementing positive economic change on a state-wide level, however, he can help thousands of people in the 55th District and throughout the great state of Wisconsin. Jay hopes to have the privilege of doing just that as your representative in the State Assembly.

Jay on Paying his Fair Share
Act 10 included provisions for state workers, including legislator’s, to begin contributing to their own pensions and health insurance. By voting against it, our opponent is telling you that he wants YOU to fund his benefits and retirement. At a time when many Wisconsin families are struggling to provide insurance and savings for themselves, what message does it send to vote to continue the free ride that the legislature has enjoyed for too long to the detriment of the state’s budget. If elected I’ll pay my own way for insurance and retirement, and not force you to do it for me.
WUPN: Schroeder is running against Republican Dean Kaufert. We thought the voters in the 55th should know about Mr Kaufert. Doesn’t seem like Me. Kaufert is a republican or the better term might be RINO. (Republican In Name Only) Here is one report.
WEAC Sponsored Kaufert Campaign Prior to Collective Bargaining Debate
By: Brian Sikma
Before voting against collective bargaining reforms in early 2011, State Representative Dean Kaufert (R) took a maximum campaign contribution from the state teachers union’s political action committee. In his 2010 campaign, Kaufert collected $500 from WEAC PAC, the political arm of WEAC, the powerful state teachers union that lobbied against collective bargaining reform and then helped organize numerous recall elections after the measure passed. All told, Kaufert cleared $2,250 in union contributions for his 2010 campaign.

WUPN: Hummmmmm! A republican getting money from WEAC before Act 10? Is that why Kaufert voted against ACT 10? We like Schroeder.
