Schroeder has candidates for township board

Members of the Schroeder town board were getting a little worried as the March 2012 election neared. Longtime Schroeder Clerk Carol Tveekrem had repeatedly stated that she was not running for reelection. Supervisor Ross Willson announced that he was moving away from Cook County. And no citizens filed to run for office before the January 15, 2012 deadline. So it was with some relief that they learned at the February town board meeting that two citizens had stepped forward to run as write-in candidates. Running for supervisor is Deb Johnson and running for clerk is Doug Schwecke. Township elections and annual meetings are held the second Tuesday of March. In 2012, township citizens will gather on Tuesday, March 13.
