Longtime Rock County Board member Hank Brill has filed paperwork stating he will not run to keep his seat on the board this spring.
The deadline for incumbents to file a notice of noncandidacy was 5 p.m. Friday. No other county board incumbents have filed such a notice.
Two people have taken out papers to run for the seat so far: Michael Mulligan of 1318 S. Jones Road, Janesville, and Vernus Skattum of 408 Westview Ave., Clinton.
Brill, a board member since 2002, represents Supervisory District 7, which comprises the town and village of Clinton, town of Bradford wards 1 and 2, town of La Prairie wards 1 and 2, town of Turtle Ward 3, and city of Janesville Ward 29.
Candidates interested in running for county board have until 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7, to turn in paperwork and signatures for ballot placement. Candidates must submit a minimum of 50 signatures and a maximum of 100 signatures.
