Following Captain John DeGeorge’s announcement that he would seek the seat of Fillmore County Sheriff in the November 2018 election, the Fillmore County Journal reached out to current Sheriff Tom Kaase.
Sheriff Kaase was asked if he will be seeking re-election. In an e-mail, Kaase replied “Good morning, Jason! Yes, I will be running!” No further details have been provided since that e-mail.
In the November 2014 election, Sheriff Kaase narrowly won the election with 51.5% of the votes over opponent Brian Miner.
The official filing period for county offices runs from May 22, 2018, to 5 p.m. on June 5, 2018. The next election will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
