City, county deal with Zaleski resignation
By City Times staff
WOOD COUNTY – The Marshfield Common Council and Wood County Board of Supervisors are dealing with the mid-term resignation of Alderman/Supervisor Jason Zaleski.
Zaleski submitted his resignation as Marshfield District No. 7 representative and Wood County District No. 4 supervisor on Sept. 19.
On Sept. 24, the Marshfield Common Council voted to appoint someone to fill the vacated seat. The city will accept letters of interest for two weeks, and then appoint someone in late October or early November. Zaleski’s term expires in April.
On the Wood County Board of Supervisors, the board chair will now determine how to handle Zaleski’s seat.
“I have the option of appointing (someone) or through a process,” said Chairman Doug Machon. “We’d take applications and interview people. It would have to be validated by the full county board. Or, I have the option of leaving that open and leaving that district unrepresented for approximately six months.”
Zaleski’s supervisor term is also up for re-election in April.
Wood County District No. 4 covers Marshfield Wards 5, 6, 16, and 17. Marshfield’s District No. 7 is located in the southeast portion of the city.
