Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow serves residents by focusing on the issues they say are most important: public safety, economic development, and low taxes. Paul does this by keeping government small and fostering local and regional partnerships to ensure that high-quality services are delivered to residents at a low cost.
Farrow gives Waukesha County a voice on national, state, and regional issues through participation on many boards, committees, and summits that provide guidance, strategy, and policy to public and private partners.
In 2018, Farrow was appointed to the Intergovernmental Policy Advisory Committee (IGPAC), which advises the U.S. Trade Representative on trade policy matters that impact state and local governments.
In 2017, Farrow served as a contributing member for two of the White House’s 2017 Infrastructure Summits in Washington, D.C., along with dozens of other state and local officials from across the country.
As the newest co-chair of the Milwaukee 7 Regional Economic Development Partnership (M7) Economic Advisory Council, Paul provides strategic direction for international economic development in the region. The M7 has leveraged regional partnerships to bring business such as Foxconn, HARIBO, Milwaukee Tool, and Colbert Packaging to Southeast Wisconsin.
Farrow recently led a group of private and public sector partners in establishing the Waukesha County Center for Growth, an economic development organization that serves as a one-stop shop for new and expanding businesses in Waukesha County.
