Watters will seek another term

December 18, 2008
Walworth — Village President Todd Watters wants to provide some continuity to the board during some important future conversations.

On Monday night, Watters said he was going to seek a fourth two-year term.

He was first elected village president in 2003. Prior to that, he served as a trustee for one year.

With Trustee Matt Long being deployed to Iraq soon, and Trustee Rich Simonson not seeking re-election, Watters thought it was important for him to seek re-election.

"This is going to be a great period for really determining what we want the village to look like for years to come," Watters said.

He also said several important decisions are coming up with planning the future of the village, including the Department of Transportation plans to reconstruct Highway 14 and the village's square, and the upcoming talks about the future of the village.

In April, seats also will be up for three trustee seats, the village president seat and the municipal judge.

Trustee David Rasmussen is circulating nomination papers. As of Tuesday morning, incumbent Trustee Patrick Hubertz, and Municipal Judge John "Jay" Peterson haven't filed election papers. No other candidates have taken out papers.
