THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Supervisor Ron Holmes Will Not Run For Amberg Board
Issue Date: December 2, 2020
Ron Holmes, Supervisor 1 for the Town of Amberg for the past 12 years, has announced that he will not be a candidate for that position in the April 6, 2021 election. Holmes said he had filed his official notice of non-candidacy as early as possible because he wanted to give potential candidates plenty of time to circulate nomination papers and meet the electorate.
Holmes added his dozen years on the board "have been a mixed bag, but enjoyable for the most part....I liked being able to help solve my constituent's problems and help make Amberg as good a place to live as can be."
Holmes said he always paid attention to the quality of life issues such as the Public Library in Wausaukee and the Amberg Historical Society.
"My regrets include the fact that the same derelict cars still sit, unlicensed on our streets without any action to get rid of them," Holmes added. He went on to say that Amberg had not been able to join the multi-jurisdictional court, which could have mitigated some of these types of issues.
"It is my sincere hope that some interested citizens step up to the plate to serve on the town board. It seems to be getting more difficult to get people interested in local government," Holmes declared, and added that having more people willing to get actively involved would will result in getting better government, "...the government we deserve." He concluded by thanking Amberg residents for their support over the past 12 years.
