Waupun Man Running For District 7 Seat On FDL County Board

One of the seats on the Fond du Lac County Board that will open up next spring is for District 7. It’s currently held by Dick Wetzel, who after 14 years on the board decided to retire. Jon Venhuizen of Waupun has turned in his nominations papers for the seat. He says he’s always been interested in politics. He works at SIA Insurance in Waupun as a financial consultant. He’s also Vice-President of the Board of Directors for the Waupun Area Chamber of Commerce and President of the Waupun Kiwanis Club in addition to other community roles. Venhuizen says he wants to make sure kids want to be proud to live and work in the area. He has been endorsed by State Representative Michael Schraa and Wetzel. Several people have taken out nomination papers for the District 7 seat.
