Maslowski: Position will be more than a 40-hour a week job
If you walk into the office at Mark Maslowski's home you notice a few things right away.
A photo of Maslowski dressed as a Blues Brother entertaining a Special Olympics crowd is hung on the opposite side of the room.In fact, just about everything in the room has a story behind it.
Like the time he met Bob Newhart backstage after a performance and Newhart told Maslowski how the television series would end a full week before the last episode ran.Or the time he met Bart Starr in a lobby at the Sentry Building and Starr asked Maslowski if he had lost weight since the last time he saw him.
Maslowski has been called many things: A Blues Brother, the Polish Polka Prince of Portage County, president of the Stevens Point Area School Board and a radio man.And if things go his way next week, Maslowski can add another name to the list -- Portage County executive.
"If I win, they are going to have to give me keys to the place because I am going to be in early," Maslowski said of the county executive position."This is not going to be a 40-hour a week job."
The Blues Brothers act was started by Maslowski and Mike Splinter, a colleague at Sentry.
"I didn't know him that well, but he looked an awful lot like Elwood Blues," Maslowski said."We got pretty good at it, and when the movie premiered here on campus we were the opening act."
The duo reprised their roles when they volunteered for the Special Olympics.
"We came out surrounded by seven or eight sheriff's deputies and when they pulled away and the audience saw us the place went nuts," Maslowski said.
Maslowski and his wife work closely on his campaign.They have two sons, Corey and Todd, and she has children from a previous marriage.When he says things like, "We have run an open and honest campaign," he's talking about he and his wife.
He was president of the school board for three years and a member for nine, but he has never worked in government before.He said he would bring a fresh, outside perspective to the position.A trait that he thinks will serve him well.
"I am coming in with no strings attached," he said."I am not going to be beholden to anyone.In this position we need someone with a good communication background.A big part of this job, maybe 60 to 70 percent will be listening to and working with the people and the County Board."
Maslowski honed his communication skills in radio.He worked for WSPT, WFHR and WIZD in Stevens Point.
Among other things, he had a two-hour radio show devoted to polka music.
"We would interview bands and have live music in the studio," he said."Polka is really a fun business."
To Maslowski, another business is county government.He looks at the position as the CEO of Portage County as part of that business.
"There is more to this position than just the budget," he said.
