New Brown Co commissioners sworn in
01/11/2021

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--Two new commissioners took their seats on the Brown County Commission Monday after being sworn in.

District Judge Jim Patton administered the oath of office to new 2nd District Commissioner Lamar Shoemaker and new 3rd District Commissioner Bill Pollock, along with other county officials elected during the November general election.

Shoemaker replaces Keith Olsen and Pollock replaces Dwight Kruse. 

Olsen, who served the past 12 years on the Commission, did not seek re-election. Pollock defeated Kruse by a narrow margin in the August primary. Kruse had served one term.   

Kruse and Olsen both thanked everyone for their support and wished their successors good luck.

1st District Commissioner Rich Lehmkuhl was appointed as commission chairman for 2021.

Commissioners also accepted the lone bid received from The Horton Headlight to serve as the official county newspaper for 2021. They submitted a bid of $2 per column inch to publish the county's legal notices.
