After a career of over 30 years in public service, Sheboygan County Circuit Court Judge Kent Hoffmann announces he will retire when his current term ends on July 31, 2023. A graduate of Kohler High School, Judge Hoffmann was appointed to the Sheboygan County Circuit Court bench by Governor Walker in May 2016 and was elected to a six-year term in 2017. Hoffmann previously served as a trial attorney with the Wisconsin State Public Defender and as an Assistant District Attorney in Marinette County prior to taking the bench.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Sheboygan County Circuit Court Judge. This a great community with wonderful people. After a rewarding career, I am looking forward to freedom to see where life leads. I would like to thank the citizens and employees of Sheboygan County for giving me this opportunity. It has been wonderful!”
Judge Hoffmann will retire by not seeking another term in this April’s election. “I encourage all interested attorneys to consider running for the seat. We need high quality, ethical, and skilled people in these elected positions. I am announcing my retirement well in advance so the public has plenty of time to get to know the candidates before April’s election.”
In retirement, Hoffmann plans to continue volunteering for art organizations, including the Kids From Wisconsin, of which he is an alumnus and serves on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee. Hoffmann and his wife, Cathy, are also looking forward to pursing their interests in travel and adventure.
Honorable Kent Hoffmann
Circuit Court Branch 2
