"I care about and will promote Opportunities for a quality Public Education for all citizens whether in our cities, urban or rural areas. I support meaningful Employment and Jobs that put our dollars to work in our local communities, not the pockets of billionaires, and endorse the full Protection of our pristine Resources so our children have a safe and clean environment for the next Seven Generations"
Paul DeMain has lived in Wisconsin his entire life. Paul is a graduate of Wausau West High School and now lives in Sawyer County near the pristine Chippewa Flowage.
A member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and of Ojibwe descent, Paul has spent his life giving back to his community through political, religious and community-based organizations. Currently the CEO of Indian Country Communications, a communications, publishing and marketing business, Paul understands how to grow a business from the ground up. Indian Country Communications was one of the largest, private sector employers on the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Reservation in Hayward, Wisconsin.
Paul knows what it takes to grow the economy in north central Wisconsin. Building his business from a $4,000 investment to a business with gross annual revenues of over $500,000 at its height, Paul understands the needs of entrepreneurs and workers that create self-sustaining employment and revenues that stay in our local communities.
As a father of 4 and grandfather of 12, Paul has a personal stake in Wisconsin’s public education system, both K-12 and continued education. Paul knows that a strong education and good health for our children and grandchildren now will provide Wisconsin with a strong economy in the future. Paul is keenly aware of the need to ensure students of higher education are not buried in debt after graduating and that our public schools function to open opportunities to the growing diversified population they serve.
Paul has been active in the fight to preserve Wisconsin’s natural resources for everyone to enjoy. Maintaining Wisconsin’s rivers and lakes, prairies and forests for future generations to experience and enjoy is important for the community and the future of Wisconsin’s economy. Wisconsin’s wilderness and wonders like Lake Superior's Ice Caves is an enormous job creator, providing tourism jobs and revenue across north central Wisconsin.
