A Busy Election Year Coming in 2020; County Board Candidates Can Now Circulate Nominations

2020 is right around the corner, and a busy election year
is what awaits us as we turn the calendar to a new year.


Fond du Lac County Clerk Lisa Freiberg is reminding
residents interested in running for a seat on the County Board of Supervisors that
the period to circulate nomination papers is now underway. “If somebody is
interested in running, this is the time,” Freiberg said. “We do have 24 of our
25 County Board Supervisors running – only Judy Goldsmith has filed
non-candidacy papers.” All county supervisors serve two-year terms and are up
for re-election in the spring of even-numbered years.


Freiberg tells us all candidates are required to get 50
signatures from your district on the nomination papers. People interested in
running can pick up the paperwork at the County Clerk’s Office. Completed nomination
forms have to be returned no later than January 7th at 5 pm.


The Spring Primary election is on February 18th,
with the Presidential Primary and Spring Election on April 7th.
