Welcome to Dane County’s website!
I’m Joe Parisi. I have lived in, worked in, and enjoyed all that Dane County has
to offer my entire life, and I am honored to serve Dane County’s residents as
Dane County Executive.
Dane County is a special place. It is home to more than 500,000 residents,
Wisconsin’s State Capitol, the world-class colleges and universities including the
University of Wisconsin and Madison College, good schools, more than 60 cities,
villages, and towns and some of the most productive farms in the state and the nation.
Dane County is home to beautiful natural spaces as well, with fish-filled lakes,
rivers and streams and parks abundant with opportunities for rest and relaxation.
Dane County is also home to one of the few free zoos in the country, and an airport
that connects our businesses and citizens to the world.
I hope you find our website helpful.
