Brown County voters will elect Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisors for three of the five nominating districts in the county in the fall election. Terms are four years.

The following nomination districts will have an open seat:

Area One consisting of the Townships of Albin, Lake Hanska and Linden, plus all of the incorporated area of Hanska.

Area Two consisting of the Townships of Bashaw, Leavenworth and Mulligan, plus all of the incorporated area of Comfrey in Brown County.

Area Four consisting of the Township of Burnstown, North Star and Stately, plus all of the incorporated area of Springfield.

Area Four is represented by Jack Vogel. Vogel is planning on re-filing for his position. Area One is currently represented by Dick Schroepfer and Area Two by Ervin Windschitl. Both are not planning on filing and will be retiring at the end of 2012.

Others serving on the district board are Greg Roiger, representing Area Three, consisting of the Townships of Eden, Home, Prairieville and Stark, plus all of the incorporated area of Sleepy Eye, Evan and Cobden and Ralph Stadick, representing Area Five, consisting of the Townships of Cottonwood, Milford and Sigel, plus the incorporated area of New Ulm.

Supervisors are elected “at large,” meaning that all eligible voters within the boundaries of the county may vote for them; however, the nominee must live in the nomination district they will represent. All elected supervisors are required to complete a Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure form. Filings will be accepted at the Brown County Auditor’s Office during the filing period of May 22 to June 5.
