December 24, 2013 | 07:51 AMELKHORN — County Board Chairwoman Nancy Russell is the only candidate for county board supervisor who has returned all of her paperwork to appear on the April ballot.
Supervisor Jerry Grant of Whitewater has filed noncandidacy papers. Grant has served on the board since 1998.
With the exception of Grant, all of the incumbent supervisors have taken out papers to seek re-election. Candidates have until Jan. 7 to turn in the paperwork.
In the fifth district, which covers the towns of Darien, Delavan, Richmond and the village of Darien, three people have taken out paperwork for the position.
Incumbent Carl Redenius, who was first elected in 2010, would be seeking his third term. Charlene Staples and Daniel Boss also have taken out paperwork for the position.
If all three return their paperwork a February primary will be necessary. If a primary occurs, the two candidates with the most votes will advance to the general election.
