Ozaukee County Board; 31 Supervisors?

Hard not to miss that statistic in a short story about the need to fill a vacancy.

Thirty-one supervisors?

For a county with fewer than 88,000 people - - about the population of two Milwaukee aldermanic districts.

I know the population is more spread out - - though the County's website tells us that Ozaukee is Wisconsin's smallest County geographically - -  and large County boards are common in Wisconsin, but 31?

I know somewhere not far away Mike Nichols is saying, "As I have been writing!"

And, probably, adding:

"He didn't listen to me when he was my editor at the paper. Maybe he will now."
