Meet Todd

Todd Novak was raised in Wisconsin and is a lifelong resident of Iowa County, where he grew up on his family farm outside of Cobb. His family came to the United States in the 1860s from Bohemia, and the Novak Family Farm has been in his family for 150 years.

Todd was first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 2014 and has been Mayor of the City of Dodgeville since 2012. Beyond his role as Mayor of Dodgeville, Todd has served as the Government and Associate Editor of the Dodgeville Chronicle and was also appointed to the Southwest Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.

Todd became active in state and local politics while in high school and became good friends with the late State Senator Dick Kruel. He traveled with Dick in the 17th Senate District and also spent time with him in the state capitol. It was from Senator Kruel that Todd learned that as an elected official, constituents always come first, regardless of who they are or what party they belong to.

Todd currently serves as the Chairman of Local Government and serves on the following committees:

Committee on Local Government (Chair)

Committee on Agriculture

Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety

Committee on Environment
