Weidner not running for re-election

Kewaunee County will have a new person running its board meetings after its chairperson Robert Weidner opted not to run for re-election last week. Representing Luxemburg in District 4 for two decades, Weidner was collecting signatures up until he decided to file his non-candidacy papers on January 2nd.  He attributes that to indecision, but it became clear to him during his vacation that his time to step aside had come. Weidner says he was most proud of making sure the county’s tax dollars went towards very worthwhile projects.

He has been reaching out to constituents to gauge their interest in representing District 4, but as of Monday Weidner had not found that person. It is likely whoever does take on the role will have to be a write-in candidate because the deadline to file nomination papers is Tuesday.
