Vice Presidential Candidate

I am Joseph Warren Schnering

Wisconsin US Senate

Joseph Warren Schnering is a local man from Southeastern Wisconsin. He grew up in Burlington Wisconsin most of his life and in 2004 bought a house in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin where he resides now. Lake Geneva is a resort town with great schools and tons youth of programs. Joseph is a father of three teenage boys. He states that is his biggest accomplishment, being a father to them. He has volunteered in his local community of Lake Geneva in multiple ways. His love for helping children is second to none and takes great pride in being a positive role-model. He has coached youth wrestling for 8 seasons for a non for profit club and coached youth tackle football for 4 seasons. Joseph has also volunteered for school activities and his local community church also. You will hear Joseph say “There is a lack of good volunteers in today’s society, so step up and be part of the solution”. Lead by example has been his motto, which I am sure he has learned by his 22 years in the Army Reserves. Joseph’s military service has been a great accomplishment that continues to grow each year while serving in the United States Army Reserves. He signed up for the Army Reserves on November 8, 1995. When ask what brought him to join the army he will tell you this story “In July of 1995 both myself and one of his best friends bought new vehicles, kind of a celebration of having good jobs at local factories in Burlington, Wisconsin (Joe was working at Lavelle Industries and his friend at Foster Forbes). About one month later my buddy lost his job, my first action was to take my friend to the Army recruiter to ensure he signed up and I signed up behind him to give him more rank to ensure he has enough money to pay for his vehicle”. Fast forward 22 years, and he has enjoyed every minute of his service and feels truly blessed on individuals he has been able to meet and work with over his career. He has been mobilized three different times. Once in February 2003 when Operation Iraqi Freedom was about to start. 826th Ordnance Company was demobilized at the end of June and never was sent overseas to serve. About 9 months past and he was called up again, this time involuntary transferred to the 221st Ordnance Company from Fort Wayne, Indiana to serve for Operation Enduring Freedom in Bagram Afghanistan. Spent 12 months on the ground in Afghanistan working at the Bagram Ammunition Supply Point, during that period as the Non-commissioned Officer In Charge for a few of those months. Joe’s third call-up happened in 2007 when a young officer he served with in Afghanistan reached out to him for his expertise to deploy with one of his platoons from the 961st Ordnance Company out of Schenectady, New York to Iraq for the surge. He spent 12 months serving at Talill Airforce Base as the senior ammunition inspector. Joseph came back home in 2009 and went back to the 826th Ordnance Company in Rockford, Illinois to serve as the Platoon Sergeant. In the beginning of 2014, Joseph transferred to the 86th Training Division to help train and evaluate Units to ensure they are ready to perform their duties overseas. Over his time serving and working long hours, he has always ensured his soldiers were taken care of. He would never have his soldiers do anything he hasn’t done already. Joseph’s competence and integrity for his military duty is never questioned. Joseph has been a carpenter most of his life and has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. Joseph’s ability to work long hours to ensure his family was taken care of has always been his main thought. He had a break from construction a couple times in his life, once was to work at Lavelle Industries as Mold Maintenance Technician and the other was to work for the Department Defense as a Unit Administrator (Payroll and Human Resources). Joseph currently works at the James A Lovell Federal Healthcare Center as a Carpenter. You will hear him say, “I have the best job in the world, I get to work with American Heroes everyday”. Joseph’s dedication to helping others has always helped him become successful at whatever position he holds. Joseph started getting interested in Politics right after his second deployment in 2009. Started being crucial of the Democrats and the items they started passing. As the years have gone by, started noticing Republicans were not any better. There are individuals he does respect in both parties and shares certain views with both parties. Joe constantly says “Follow the money”, when it comes to big bills passed by Congress. Joseph vows to seek out corruption and follow the platform of the Veterans Party of America. He will represent all his constituents, and not just the ones that voted for him. He believes what makes America The United States are all the different views, without opposing views he believes we would lose track of what our forefathers dreamed for this nation to be. Every view is important and once those views can find the common road, that is when we are on the right route. Joseph Schnering, father, coach, carpenter, and dedicated soldier, has given his life to ensure people are helped at every level. He has volunteered in all these positions and has aimed to have everyone else in his mind, not himself. Joseph truly knows the meaning of selfless service and continues to live by it. That is why he wants to represent the Wisconsin people in the 2018 Senate, to champion the voice for his fellow Wisconsinites.
