Email News Alerts

Two sitting county commissioners will face off in the Nov. 6 general election -- a showdown that came about because redistricting put them both in the same new district.


The new District 3 encompasses the townships of Lakeview, Burlington, Erie and Holmesville.

Gerry Schram has been on the board for four years and John Okeson has been a commissioner for two years.

Schram, 66, is retired from car sales at Norseman Motors, where he worked for over 34 years.
