Being president of anything is no easy task, and whether it is president of a whole country or a president of a village in rural Wisconsin, it helps to have a good support group around you.

Daryl Boe has served on the village of Taylor board since 1997. He was interim president in 2001 and then was officially elected president in 2004.

After serving his interim term, Boe decided not to run for president because he felt he didn’t have the time for the position.

Then the president who was elected was relocated for work leading Boe to step in and fill out another term, which prompted him to eventually take over as president.

Boe says that his career in politics did not start because he had many political aspirations, but simply because he was asked to run.
