The Caledonia Village Board has five candidates to consider to fill a vacancy left by the appointment of Jim Dobbs to the president’s seat.
Dobbs was chosen by his fellow board members earlier this month to serve as president after Bob Bradley stepped down, a story in The Journal Times reads. He has been on the board since 2011 and is a retired Racine police officer.
Both Dobbs and Trustee Kevin Wanggaard made presentations to the board on why they would be a good choice to serve until April 2019, when Bradley’s term expires. Bradley was re-elected during the April 2017 election. His last day on the board was Nov 6.
Two of the five interested applicants are former board members; both Kathy Burton and David Prott are throwing their hats back into the ring. They are joined by Fran Martin, Thomas Witek, Jr., and Dale Stillman. Interested residents had until 5 p.m. Tuesday to submit their resumes and a letter of interest.
Village Clerk Kari Torkilsen told Racine County Eye she is trying to get a meeting scheduled next week for the board to interview each of the candidates.
