“I have very mixed feelings, of course,” he said. “But I have an opportunity I can’t pass up, so I’m making the jump while I can.”
Larsen has been a lifelong Racine-area resident and has lived in Sturtevant since 2005. He was elected to the board in 2009 and said serving the village has been an enjoyable experience.
“I’m proud of our accomplishments on the board for the residents of Sturtevant,” he said. “I’ve really enjoyed serving this village.”
Village President Steve Jansen will meet with Cole Tuesday to discuss appointing someone to fill Larsen’s seat for the remainder of his term. He was re-elected in 2015, so the new board member will serve until the April 2017 election.
“We’ll figure out a game plan,” Jansen said. “I’m sure we’ll find someone to take the reins. Wherever Chris lands, I wish him well. He did a helluva good job for this village over the years.”
