Sturtevant Trustee Chris Larsen announced Wednesday that he will seek a fourth term on the village board in April.
I am proud to have served the a village of Sturtevant since 2009. I am proud of our accomplishments but there is still work to do. I will be running for reelection in Spring of 2015. We need to continue fiscal responsibility, maintain our independence as a Village and stand up to the bully municipalities around us. I ask for your vote April 7th!
Larsen told Racine County Eye he was disappointed that voters turned down the opportunity to fund for the first time in years upkeep and improvements at village parks. Still, he appreciates that residents participated in the process and provided some direction to board members.
“The Sturtevant voters have had their say. Parks and traditions are not a top priority. I am glad we put this to the voters and I for one have heard their message,” he said. “Hard choices will have to be made but now we have additional direction. Thank you to all residents that voted and made their voice heard.”
Larsen can legally begin circulating nomination papers in December. The spring general election is April 7, 2015.
