On Tuesday, April 17, voters in District Three (Fillmore, Bloomfield, Forestville, Beaver and York Townships and Ward I Spring Valley) will elect a new county commissioner to fill the vacancy created with the resignation of Commissioner Gary Peterson. The two candidates are Harry Root and Mike Zimmer. The Journal sent each candidate a questionnaire to find out where they stand on various issues.

Journal: Why do you want to be Third District Commissioner?

Root: I feel I’m qualified for the position. I’m a life long resident of Fillmore County. I have a strong farming background and a good understanding of issues that are being faced by agriculture today. My understanding of business and all aspects of running a business will be very helpful if I am elected. I have a vision for Fillmore County to move forward into the future and to address issues that citizens and our local businesses face. I’ve always had interest in being a county commissioner, and I have been fortunate enough to personally know many of the commissioners that have served before me. I understand the position is not always easy, but I am committed to doing the very best I can to help fulfill the needs of Fillmore County.

In these positions I’ve gained knowledge about things like finance, facilities, labor negotiations, looking at the total picture and consideration of the residents views. Recently the make-up of the County Commissioners has experienced a change. This change will bring fresh ideas and a new outlook on the future of Fillmore County. Exciting opportunities like the creation of a County EDA that can be used to promote new businesses and job growth. During this time of change, I feel my past experience will be an asset to the residents of Fillmore County and the County Commissioners.

Journal: The Fillmore County Planning Commission is presently discussing possible changes to the zoning ordinance which would, in certain circumstances, change the one non-farm home per 1/4 1/4 (40 acres) section rule to allow for increased development in the Ag District. What are your thoughts about this issue and zoning in general?

Zimmer: Before I answer this question, lets look at why the regulation exists at all. Basically, it is an attempt to avoid sprawling development in the County. I think we can a .....
