(Waupun) A Fond du Lac County supervisor from Waupun has announced his candidacy for county executive. Sam Kaufman is running for the position following the untimely passing of longtime Executive Al Buechel.
Kaufman is an attorney and municipal prosecutor for local law enforcement. He is in his sixth year as a board supervisor and fourth year as a Town of Waupun board member.
Kaufman says it is important the county government continues to build upon Buechel’s accomplishments as they plan for their future. He says he will continue to partner with local municipalities, county agencies, and the community on important priorities including public safety, capital improvements, and workforce development.
Nomination papers for county executive must be returned by April 12th. A special election is scheduled for June 7th. If necessary, a primary election will be held on May 19th.
