Current elected officials
André Jacque is the current senator serving the 1st district. He was elected on November 7, 2018 in a General Election, after Caleb Frostman, defeated him in the special election on June 12, 2018.
- The 1st (represented by Joel Kitchens)
- The 2nd (represented by Shae Sortwell)
- The 3rd (represented by Ron Tusler).
Note: the boundaries of districts have changed over history. Previous politicians of a specific numbered district have represented a different geographic area, due to redistricting.
For the 1853 session, the Senate was expanded to 25 members, and the 1st District lost Brown County.
For the 1859 session, the Senate was again expanded, to 30 members, and the District was reduced to Sheboygan County alone (the rest of the district became the new 19th District).
As of 1862, the Senate expanded to 33 seats, a size it would retain well into the 21st century; the 1st District remained unchanged.
The Senate was totally redistricted in 1876; Sheboygan County was now part of the 20th Senate District (along with part of Fond du Lac County). The new 1st District was made up of Door Kewaunee, Oconto and Shawano counties, which had previously been part of the 2nd and 8th Districts.
Kewaunee and Shawano counties were removed from the district in 1888. Kewaunee was later re-added and Oconto removed in 1892—this district remained consistent for thirty years.
In 1922, the district moved to roughly its present boundaries when Marinette was removed and Manitowoc county was re-added. This district was stable for fifty years.
