Wagner to resign from Kewaunee County Board

For the first time in over 20 years, there will be a new voice representing the Town of Red River on the  Kewaunee County Board. Chuck Wagner announced at the end of Tuesday’s Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee meeting that he would be stepping down from his District 3 Supervisor position due to family reasons. While he serves on five different committees, it was his work with the Land and Water Conservation Department that he was most fond of during his tenure.  He had been pursuing a degree in forestry and wildlife management before being drafted into the military prior to the Vietnam War. Wagner never lost his passion for the outdoors and eventually joined the Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee and similar boards at the state level.  Whether it was discussions around a new county jail or groundwater quality, Wagner says he always tried to listen to as many sides of an issue before reaching a decision.

You will likely have the opportunity to replace Wagner much as he did for his predecessor.  He also threw his name in for consideration after a supervisor resigned from their position during the summer of 1999. More details on applying for the role will likely be announced when he officially resigns at the next Kewaunee County Board meeting on July 20th.
