Candidate Biography

From candidate Website

Paul Knoff is a familiar face and an even more familiar voice to the people of Central Wisconsin.

As the news director at Central Wisconsin Broadcasting in Neillsville, Paul covered local, regional, state, national and international news for 17 years. He also reported for the Wisconsin Radio Network and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Telling the stories of the people of Clark, Wood and Marathon counties was a dream job for the Granton-native, who has lived in the area his entire life.

In school, Paul spent his time learning about community service in the Granton FFA. He learned about hard work shearing Christmas trees at Lindsey Trees. He learned about teamwork by participating in athletics.

Paul and his wife, Michelle, married in 1999. They lived in the City of Neillsville for seven years before moving back to rural Granton in 2006.

While in Neillsville, the couple purchased and remodeled a downtown commercial property, owning and leasing it for several years.

He was elected to the Granton School Board in 2009. He is also an active participant in the Clark County School Board Forum, which is striving to find innovative and more efficient ways to guarantee our rural students get a great public education for years to come.

Paul is an active member of the community, serving on numerous committees, hosting area events, volunteering and coaching Little League baseball.

Paul and Michelle have two children, Andrew, 6, and Collin, 3.
