Long Term Dodge County Board Member Not Seeking Re-Election

(Trenton) Dodge County Board Chairman Russ Kottke is not seeking re-election. After almost 25-years on the board, including 18 as county board chairman, Kottke has filed paperwork declaring non-candidacy in the spring election. Because of redistricting, the 66-year-old would have had to face another incumbent for the District Two seat in the Fox Lake area. Other incumbent county board supervisors who have filed non-candidacy include: Timothy Kemmel, Allen Behl, Joseph Marsik, Jeff Berres, and Thomas Nickel. The candidate filing deadline for local and statewide seats is close of business Tuesday.
