Rettig Files for Board Vacancy

Rettig Makes It Official

No surprise as Janelle Rettig followd through and formally filed Thursday for appointment to the Board of Supervisors vacancy. She's already publicly said she would and stacks of letters with prominent signatures (Mary Mascher, Joe Bolkcom...) have been piling up.

Rettig brings the field of applicants to six. Charles Panzer and 1990 candidate/1999 applicant Norm Bickford filed Wednesday, joining former supervisor Mike Lehman, Iowa City council member Mike O'Donnell, and businessman John Green. Twelve people filed in 1999 when Joe Bolkcom resigned to go to the state senate.

The application deadline is Friday at 5. The local Republicans, despite their stance in favor of a petitioned special election, have a name in the mix: Edgar Thornton.

UPDATE: Another applicant makes it seven: Solon city council member Cami Jo Rasmussen.
