    Harrison DeVries is the new clerk of the Town of Saukville, but the 22-year-old admits one of the eight other applicants could have just as easily been selected to replace Naomi Bruecker.
    “I was pleasantly surprised and very happy they were able to pick me, wanted to pick me,” he said. “They must have been very impressed with me because I felt that there may have been older people who had been in a position such as this before. So yeah, while I feel I’m very qualified to be able to take on this position and do very well, I do feel a little bit surprised.”
    The Plymouth native’s first day was Monday after he was appointed at a special Town Board meeting on Nov. 7.
    The 2017 Marquette University graduate worked for eight months, including four as an intern, as a legislative aid for Milwaukee County Supervisors as well as a research assistant for the Milwaukee Public Museum.
    Town Chairman Don Hamm said that background helped DeVries get picked.
    “We had a lot of very good, qualified candidates,” Hamm said. “Some were very over-qualified. But some of his experiences he’s had, it just seemed like he was a really good fit for our town.”
    In October, the board unanimously voted not to renew the term of office for Bruecker, who was appointed town clerk in 2014.
