New Marquette County Board Commissioner

The Marquette County Board met for a regularly scheduled board meeting tonight, with a lot on their agenda.

In January, Vice Chair Jim Cihak announced that he would be resigning from his position after 11 years of service. Leaving an empty seat on the county board… until tonight.

With support from all current board members, Steven Pence was appointed as the new District One County Commission.

Citizens of District One have stressed their concerns with other commissions about how this empty seat should be filled. They had hoped for a special election. But, that is not possible.
