Press Release: Congressman-Elect Pete Stauber names District Director

Isaac Schultz will direct Stauber’s Minnesota offices

HERMANTOWN – Congressman-Elect Pete Stauber named Upsala native Isaac Schultz as his District Director for his Minnesota offices. Schultz, a 2010 graduate of Upsala High School and 2013 graduate of the University of Northwestern, St. Paul, will oversee the multiple Minnesota offices and serve as one of Stauber’s senior advisors.

“As a lifelong native of the 8th congressional district, Isaac has experienced the issues and challenges working families face and recognizes the diverse industries, businesses, and communities that make the 8th great,” said Stauber. “I look forward to working with Isaac throughout the district to ensure we provide our constituents with the first-class service they deserve and expect.”

Schultz previously served as the Legislative Assistant and a senior advisor to Speaker Kurt Daudt. Schultz once interned for Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka; both Daudt and Gazelka live in the 8th congressional district. Schultz has private-sector experience as an auctioneer. In fact, Schultz is a state champion auctioneer who finished in 11th place in the International Auctioneer Championship in 2016. Schultz is also an avid hunter and sportsman.

“I am honored to join Congressman-Elect Stauber’s team in Minnesota and welcome the challenge of setting up offices throughout the 18-county district,” said Schultz. “My priority will be to ensure the residents of the 8th district receive the efficient and effective constituent services they have grown to expect and I look forward to making sure Pete’s offices are available and accessible for everyone.”

Stauber, who was elected to Congress last month, recently named Virginia, Minn. native Desiree Koetzle as his chief of staff. A fourth generation Iron Ranger, Koetzle will oversee the Washington and Minnesota offices.

Stauber, who served 22 years in the Duluth Police Department where he retired as a Commander, is a small business owner and St. Louis County Commissioner. Pete and his wife, Jodi, live with their four children in Hermantown.
