Brooks resigns from board as officials juggle state aspirations PDF Print E-mail

County leader says plan to hold both local, state offices changed when Schlenvogt entered race for Senate

  Ozaukee County Supr. Rob Brooks of Saukville, an influential voice on the County Board during his 12 years in office, resigned Tuesday to focus on the state office he will assume on Jan. 5.

    A chairman of the board for nine years and current vice-chairman, Brooks had planned to step down from his leadership role but remain a county supervisor while also serving as a state representative. That changed, however, when County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt declared his candidacy for the state Senate last week, he said.

    The possibility of the board’s top two officers resigning at the same time is a concern, Brooks said, so he decided to step aside now.

    â€śTwo people leaving at once would create too big of a vacuum on the board,” Brooks said. “I spent too long getting the board in good shape to walk away and let it go to hell.”

    The county will appoint a supervisor to complete Brooks’ term in the 5th District, which includes Village of Saukville Wards 1, 2, 3 and 6. Brooks’ term expires in April 2016.
