Russek will file for third district seat

June 16, 2008

Incumbent John D. (Jack) Russek announced last week he will file for the third district Wright County Commissioner seat he has held for 16 years.

“I feel the experience from eight years on the Franklin Township Board, and the last 16 as commissioner will be valuable in making the tough decisions that will need to be made in the next four years,” Russek said.

Having been born in Wright County, he has lived his entire life here, except for military duty.

“If re-elected, I remain committed to serving the people of the third district, as well as all of Wright County,” Russek said.

Former Delano Mayor Jon Steinmetz has also announced his intent to file for the position, as has former Wright County Sheriff’s deputy Matt Walker of Rockford Township.
