Five candidates are competing for three seats on the Clinton Village Board.

Atkinson did not respond to the Gazette’s request for information.


Lois N. Kroeze (I)

Address: 318 Mill St., Clinton.


Job: Retired


Community service: American Red Cross Bloodmobile volunteer


Elected posts: Member of the Clinton Village Board


Major campaign issues: I think we will have a lot of challenges the next two years. State budget cuts will affect everyone. I’m looking forward to working with our new administrator. Hopefully, everyone will work with the board as we strive to provide the same services our citizens are used to having.


Marianne Nielson

Address: 505 Johnson Ave., Clinton.


Nielson did not respond to the Gazette’s request for information.


Ron Schut

Age: 64


Address: 408 Highland Park, Clinton.


Job: Semi-retired carpenter; former member of the U.S. Navy Seabees.


Education: Graduated from Clinton High School in 1964 and served as carpenter apprenticeship in 1968.


Community service: Served four years on the CESA No. 2 Board of Control and volunteer with the Clinton VFW.


Elected posts: Served nine years on the Clinton School Board and one year on the village board.


Major campaign issues: Clinton is a small community, and to keep it vibrant we need to keep attracting new business to help the village grow. During these hard economic times, it is important that we do whatever we can to provide good services while watching out for the costs of those services.


Ron Torkilson (I)

Age: 60


Address: 608 Milwaukee Road, Clinton.


Job: Unemployed


Education: Graduated from Clinton High School in 1969. Associate degree from Blackhawk Technical College, 1971.


Community service: Thirty years as a driver for Clinton EMS.


Elected posts: Member of the Clinton Village Board


Major campaign issues: I enjoy being a member of the Clinton Village Board, chairman of the public works committee and a member of the planning commission. My wish is to get more people to attend board meetings and see how government works. I also want to continue to do what is best for the village.
