Jursik Seeks County Board Chairmanship
One of Oak Creek's county supervisors reportedly wants to become the next leader of the county board.
Milwaukee County Supervisor Pat Jursik, who represents a portion of Oak Creek, is one of five candidates seeking to replace the retiring Lee Holloway as chairman of the county board, according to a Journal Sentinel report.
Jursik, 64, ran unopposed in the April 3 election and has been on the board since 2007. The story notes the four other candidates are part of the board's liberal majority, while Jursik is considered a moderate.
The board will choose a new chairman on Monday. That's also when Steve Taylor, who defeated Ken Gehl for the county supervisor position that encompasses most of Oak Creek, will be sworn-in to a four-year term.
