(Juneau) Dodge County leaders have nominated the next county administrator. Cameron Clapper has been selected to fill the role that was made vacant by the recent retirement of Jim Mielke, who was in the position since 2008.
Clapper has been the Whitewater city manager since 2012. Prior, he was the city’s assistant manager from 2010 to 2012. Clapper also served as the village of Waunakee as a management, analyst, and deputy clerk for five years and then as assistant village administrator. He earned both a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies and a Master’s degree in Public Administrator from BYU.
The Dodge County Board’s Executive Committee has been leading the administrator search, which began in March. They selected Clapper from a field of seventeen applicants. Clapper and three other finalists participated in an assessment process on June 6th and 7th. During a meet and greet with county officials, he told Daily Dodge he has an interest in county government.
The full county board will vote on Clapper’s nomination at their meeting later this month. If confirmed, he will begin work in Dodge County on August 21st.
