Jeff Schmitt wins election for town of Beaver Dam chair

  • 0

Jeff Schmitt had the most write-in votes for the chairman of the town of Beaver Dam, but as Thursday afternoon had not confirmed with the Daily Citizen he was accepting the position.

Schmitt currently serves as the supervisor on the Dodge County Board for District 5 and on the town board as a supervisor for the second seat. Current town chair John Kuzniewicz did not seek re-election, and there was nobody on the ballot, so voters could only write candidates in on Tuesday.
