Karen Reisner

About Karen: At 62 years of age, my husband Dennis and I have been married 42 years, tying the knot shortly after his return from Vietnam. Our only child, Spring recently turned 40. I have a BA from the University of Wisc.

Together we purchased a dairy farm near Pine Island in 1975 where we bred and developed a herd of registered Holsteins. We eventually marketed breeding stock worldwide.

For about six years after retiring from farming in 1996, we delivered mostly motor homes and travel trailers across the country. We scheduled deliveries to coincide with opportunities to volunteer for a week or more at a time at many National Parks and National Forests country- wide. We share a passion for nature and the back country.

We chose to retire in Fillmore County and found our home in Chatfield Township while on a trip to Iowa to visit my mother in 2002.

Why are you seeking to be elected for the Fillmore County District 1 commissioner seat?

I have an interest in all levels of politics and keep current. For over 10 years I have observed and reported on the county board and other local government entities for the Fillmore County Journal. I understand the responsibilities of the county board. I am confident I can do an effective and fair job as 1st district commissioner. I have been on the Fillmore County Economic Development Authority board for six years. Fillmore County is a great place to live. I want to preserve that which is special about the county while encouraging economic growth. Being retired, I have the time to devote to this position. I have a hands-on background in agriculture, business, and marketing. Lastly, I strongly believe more women should participate in local government. There has not been a woman on the board since 2004.

What do you feel are the top three priorities that Fillmore County commissioners should be concerned with as we move forward?

As commissioner, I will be responsible for representing the people of District 1 and the county as a whole. Therefore, it is important to listen to citiz .....
