FDL County Board Chairman To Recommend Interim County Executive

The Fond du Lac County Board will meet in a Special Session tonight (4/12/2022), a little over two weeks after the passing of long-time County Executive Allan Buechel.

Included on the agenda is a recommendation from County Board Chairman and Acting County Executive, Martin Farrell.

Farrell did make it known at the last special session that it was his intent to recommend an Interim Executive.

A special election to fill the remainder of the current County Executive term is set for June 7, with nomination papers due back no later than 5pm today.

The current term would expire April 15, 2025.

Current County Board Supervisor Sam Kaufman is the only person who has officially announced he is running for the position.

If a primary is necessary, it would take place May 10.
