Story By Lyndsey Stemm


RHINELANDER - Grady Hartman can now call himself the new Oneida County Sheriff. Sergeant Hartman took the oath of office this morning in Judge Patrick O'Melia's Courtroom, then went out to start his first full day as Sheriff of Oneida County.

Governor Scott Walker appointed Hartman Tuesday to replace Sheriff Jeff Hoffman, who retired this winter.

He'll hold the position until the next election in 2014.

Hartman has been with the Oneida County Sheriff's Office for 13 years. He was a Sergeant the past seven years.

Hartman serves on the Rhinelander School Board, and as a Town of Crescent supervisor.

"I'm a family man first. I have a nice, young family. I like to get involved with the community, and I will continue to be out serving the community in many different aspects," says Hartman.

Hartman says there will be a brief transition period as he learns the ropes.
