Royalton Township Clerk Provides Endorsement


ST. JOSEPH, MI: Julie Wuerfel, lifelong Berrien County resident and business owner for nearly 20 years has announced that she will run for the open 6th District Berrien County Commission seat. Wuerfel, whose business received the 2020 Moody on the Market Best Places to Work in Southwest Michiganaward, owns Mosquito Squad, Michigan’s #1 ranked franchise and #10 nationwide. 


“I worked with Julie Wuerfel during the 2020 Presidential Primary,” said William A. Foust, Royalton Township Clerk. “I found Julie to be a very detailed person with a great work ethic and a sense of commitment to what we were doing. The attribute that stood out the most to me though was Julie’s ability to work in a group setting where differing opinions were being expressed and her ability to bring everyone together to reach a consensus. This is a rare talent. I have no doubt, but that Julie Wuerfel will be a great Berrien County Commissioner for our district 6 and will represent our interests extremely well. I fully support Julie Wuerfel to be our next County Commissioner.”


“I am honored to have the support of Royalton Township Clerk William A. Foust for my campaign,” said Julie Wuerfel. “Mr. Foust’s endorsement means a lot to me. He has an outstanding reputation as a pillar in the community. I cannot thank him enough.”


In addition to her business interests and active operations as President of Mosquito Squad of Southwest Michigan, Wuerfel serves as President of the Executive Professional Women’s Association (EPWA) and has policy development experience with the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD). She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Administration from Ferris State University and an M.B.A. from Western Michigan University. Prior to establishing her current business, Wuerfel successfully owned and operated two other businesses in addition to having previous work experience in marketing and customer service at a global Fortune 100 organization.


“I’m ready to work for the citizens of Berrien County,” said Wuerfel. “My priorities are straightforward. I’ll work to ensure a balanced budget, broadband access, economic growth and transparency in Government. I have created jobs in North Berrien County and I know what it takes to make a payroll and help my employees provide for their families. I am a strong advocate for Entrepreneurs and growth for our area. We can use common sense to create jobs and keep a balanced budget at the county level. I have the energy to work for you.”


William A. Foust is the latest in a growing number of business leaders to support Wuerfel’s candidacy for the 6th District Berrien County Commission seat. Foust joins Glen Head of Mailmax, Rachel Arent, Hilda Banyon, Heidi Lull of State Farm Insurance in Benton Harbor, Amie Witkowski of Meister-Witkowski Photography, Jerry Sarno of Home Watch of Southwest Michigan, Attorney of Law Sara A. Senica, and Bob Rogers of SERVPRO of Berrien County.


Wuerfel lives in Royalton Township with her daughter Rosie who just completed a full year studying aboard and will graduate from Eastern Michigan University this year. Her late husband, Ken was her biggest cheerleader and would be advocating for her to win this seat.
