Personal Interests

David Krause has received numerous academic and business awards over the years; however, he is proudest of his accomplishments on the various corporate, charitable, civic boards and foundations he has served. His major interests have been the promotion of open governance and the support of character development. On the boards he has served he sought to avoid all acts and appearances of conflicts of interest. He has also sought greater transparency of the decision-making process and has actively promoted ‘character.’ When the School District of Jefferson’s board of education – a body he served on for over 16 years (12 years as president) - was named the first ‘School District of Character’ in Wisconsin, it was a significant accomplishment. He believes that fostering character education in schools and community is vital to the continued success of our society and serves to further strengthen our democracy.
