Bloomfield Town Board, supervisor no. 3
Two people are vying for the supervisor No. 3 position on the Bloomfield Town Board.
The incumbent, who has served on the town board for more than four years, is seeking re-election. She faces a challenge from a woman who spent time talking to residents to learn the issues.
The candidates are:
Sue Leedle (I)
Address: N698 Ridge Road, Lake Geneva.
Education: Graduate of Badger High School, 1977; studied accounting, computers and community-supported agriculture at Gateway Technical College, Kenosha, 1977-78.
Community service: Linn 4-H project leader, 1993-present; secretary/treasurer for Linn Homemakers Club, 2002-present.
Elected posts: Bloomfield Town Board supervisor No. 3, 2005-present.
Major campaign issue: The town's financial future is the most important issue we face. We face diminishing state and federal funds, state mandated budget constraints, ever increasing demands for services and loss of town land to incorporated municipalities.
Address: W1316 Eastwood Road, Pell Lake.
Job: Senior caregiver, Home Helpers, Burlington, and Visiting Angels, Fort Atkinson.
Education: Associate degree liberal arts, Wright College, Chicago, 1978. Certified nursing assistant. Licensed real estate agent in Illinois.
Community service: Member of the Bloomfield Recycling Committee, 2008-present; former member of the Bloomfield Planning and Zoning Commission, 2006-08; former volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels in Pell Lake.
Elected posts: None
Major campaign issues: I've talked to people in the community, and the issues brought to my attention are: organized activities for children, a safe walkway around the lake and removal or cleanup of junk vehicles and uninhabited houses. I also would like to see more people get involved in their community.
