County Supervisor Pat Jursik has announced that she will not run for re-election in 2016. Here’s the whole story from JSOnline:
Milwaukee County Supervisor Patricia Jursik will not seek re-election in April to a third full term on the County Board.
Jursik has represented the 8th District communities of St. Francis, Cudahy and South Milwaukee since she was elected in a special election in August 2007. She was re-elected in April 2008 and 2012.
Jursik announced her retirement in a newsletter distributed this week to constituents.
A district resident interested in running for the 8th District seat in the April 5 spring election can file a campaign registration statement and begin circulating nomination papers on Dec. 1.
Jursik is a former chair of the County Board’s economic and community development committee. She currently serves as vice chair of the judiciary committee and is a member of the finance committee.
Those of you in her district have a chance to be involved in county politics…unfortunately she isn’t giving anyone much time to put together a campaign before the period for circulating nomination papers begins. And that’s a shame. Because I am sure there are some interested parties who wouldn’t run against the incumbent but would love to run for the open seat.
