Mitchel Lentz wins a seat on the Fillmore County Board of Commissioners

Posted in Wykoff Government

The ballots are in, which means the votes are in, as well.

In the ripple effect that started with Tom Kaase winning the November 2014 election to be named the Sheriff of Fillmore County, Kaase’s seat as Commissioner for District 1 became an open seat up for grabs.

A special election was held on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, with the write-in candidate Mitchel Lentz of Spring Valley claiming victory over Karen Reisner of rural Fountain and Michael Holzer of Wykoff.

With 567 of a the total 2,650 eligible voters in District 1, this election attracted 21.4 percent of all voters in the district.

Of those 567 voters, Lentz captured 218 votes, Reisner earned 190 votes, and Holzer tallied 158 votes. There was one additional write-in vote to bring the total to 567.

The full results from the election are broken down by territories within the district on page 6 of today’s Fillmore County Journal.

Within District 1, Lentz won the City of Chatfield, Jordan Township, Spring Valley Township and Sumner Township.

Reisner won over voters in Chatfield Township, while Holzer dominated the City of Wykoff and Fillmore Township.

Mitchel Lentz will be sworn into office to oversee District 1, working side-by-side with Randy Dahl, District 2; Harry Root, District 3, Duane Bakke, District 4; and Marc Prestby, District 5.

Representing their five districts, the Board has overall responsibility in approving budgets, policies and procedures to govern county operations.
