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 Im qualified for the position. Im 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. Ive 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.

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 .....
