THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Leick Again Seeks Middle Inlet Post
Issue Date: March 6, 2013
Former Town of Middle Inlet Supervisor Roger Leick is hoping voters will return him to a seat on the Middle Inlet Town Board when they go to the polls on Tuesday, April 2. He served two terms on the board, from April of 2007 until he lost a bid for re-election in April of 2011.
I found my prior service on the board interesting and challenging and hope to return to office so I can again work effectively for the people of Middle Inlet as a problem solver who always puts our towns interest first, Leick declared.
Leick said during his four years as supervisor he served with former Town Chair Joe Policello and current Chair Richard Wade and worked well with both. He is proud that he helped save the town some $45,000 on two road repair projects and saved taxpayer dollars by locating a reliable business to handle garbage collection at less cost.
He and his wife, Joanne are members of St. Mary Catholic Church, Crivitz. They will celebrate 50 years of marriage in November. They are the parents of three sons and two grandsons, who all continue to live in the Greenleaf area, about 10 miles south of DePere where they grew up. The Leicks enjoyed their vacation home in Middle Inlet since 1979, and in 2003 moved full time from Greenleaf to their home at N9470 Lake Mary Road.
He was an independent businessman in Greenleaf, dealing with school busses, servicing automobiles, including used cars, and operating a fuel oil route.
Leick was an active member of the Greenleaf Volunteer Fire Department for 50 years, and served several terms as fire chief there.
He joined the Middle Inlet Volunteer Fire Department upon becoming a Middle Inlet resident, and his wife was an active member and officer of the Middle Inlet Fire Department Auxiliary until it disbanded about two years ago.
The couple are members of River Road Riders Snowmobile Club and remain active also with the Greenleaf Riders Snowmobile Club which they helped organize many years ago. He served as its first president.
I am a problem solver, Leick declared. I would like to continue working for responsible budgets that meet the needs of our town while limiting spending and keeping our taxes down.
