Crime, Controversy, and Misconduct: A Comprehensive Look At Kenosha County Board Member Andy Berg

Share
Tweet
Andy Berg (D) County Board Supervisor

Andy Berg, 42, of Kenosha first found himself in the public eye in 2012, when he ran for Alderman. He lost big. He took last place out of three candidates, running against incumbent Alderman, Anthony Kennedy (D). Kennedy told Berg that he would help him if he ran next time, not against him, but instead for the County Board. Andy did in fact run for the County Board in 2016 and won – because no one ran against him. He was re-elected again in 2018 and just recently in 2020. All three elections, he ran unopposed. He did run for Sheriff in 2018 and got beat badly in the primary by Sheriff’s Sgt. David Zoerner. This means Berg never won a contested election. Each and every election in which he had an opponent, he lost by a wide margin. His election history is detailed below.

Seeking Employment with County

He is employed at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, but that might not be for much longer, as we’ll discuss later. On his time so far on the board, he really isn’t known for much, with the exception of pushing for the legalization of marijuana. He also challenged that a colleague of his, Supervisor John Pool wasn’t a veteran, and he was quickly proven wrong. After Andy, who has never been a law enforcement officer lost his bid for Sheriff, applied twice for the position of Deputy Sheriff. He was denied both bids. In his applications, he noted his criminal conviction history including DUI and drug convictions. It is usually pretty tough to be hired by a law enforcement agency with such convictions. Many in the community questioned the legality and ethical implications of applying for a position within the county as he was an elected official responsible for the budget.

Domestic Dispute Involving Damage to Property and Alcohol

On August 18, 2018, Berg was involved in a alleged drunken domestic dispute with his wife. There was property in the home destroyed by the couple. Berg called police and wanted the police to respond because his wife “was calling (him) names”. You can listen to this call to police below.

Berg’s close friends in the community include big-time criminals Ray Roberts and Sharmain Harris. He considers himself a Black Lives matter activist and isn’t shy that he is a far-left democrat. On September 24, of this year, he responded to an email from a concerned tax-payer saying “Anyone who supports a 17 year old to go to another state to shoot and kill people, need (sic) to have their mental health checked.” He also posted on Facebook an untrue speculation about who gave Kyle Rittenhouse the AR-15 he used to defend himself. After the man who gave him the rifle confessed to police, he kept his comment up, doubling down on his untrue statement. Berg has also challenged a colleague and another citizen to physical fights recently.

In Hot Water at Work

On November 12, 2020, Berg attended a Kenosha County Board meeting and was reportedly bragging to colleagues that he was supposed to be at work, but called in sick. The Kenosha County Eye looked in to this and discovered that he did, in fact call in sick and was paid on November 12. We also learned that he is on thin ice with the Department of Corrections. He has a lengthy personnel file with discipline for attendance related issues and for showing prisoners a movie that contained nudity and another called “Dear White People” that is a favorite of the BLM crowd. For this, he served a 1-day, unpaid suspension day. He served a 3-day unpaid suspension this past September for policy and attendance issues. He was also disciplined once for missing work 6 times in a calendar year without a Doctor’s note. A portion of his personnel file is below. He later posted on Facebook that he has a “new job on the horizon” and he is “leaving the prison hopefully sooner than later.” The DOC is aware of Andy calling in sick for the board meeting and in his most recent 3-day suspension, his supervisor mentioned the possibility of termination.

Andy Berg is a very good reason for folks to GET INVOLVED and run for local office. He is in office ONLY because no one else in the district has stepped up. If you live in the below boundaries of the 10th District, you can run against him in 2022 and there will be a long line of folks who would be happy to assist your campaign.

    He looks like a fucking clown, too….but that’s neither here nor there.

  2. That useless jag liberal Berg wanted to be the Sheriff of Kenosha County?? Haha. Imagine getting one of those satanic lefty pukes like that in an actual county Sheriff’s position just so they can become another Constituional 2A oath-breaker.
