Council demurs on recommendation for County Board vacancy

12:31 PM, Feb. 13, 2013
Oconto County Board chairman Lee Rymer presents a plaque of appreciation to Joanne Young, the widow of late supervisor Ed Young, at the Jan. 24 board meeting. With Young are her daughters, Amy Cisar and Anna Manzetti. Rymer, in slightly halting voice, told Mrs. Young that 'it's going to take four people to replace him' on the board, considering his service on several county committees. 'He did a great job, Joanne ? we want you to know that,' Rymer said. Mrs. Young said her husband 'was dedicated to the board, every single minute of it,' adding that 'he had the knowledge and desire to help.' Young, who died Jan. 2 at age 70, served on the county board for the last 15 years. He also had served on the Oconto City Council for 19 year, including the last 12, as well as a stint on the Oconto School Board.

The Oconto Committee of the Whole last week declined recommend two candidates to succeed the late Ed Young in the District 11 seat on Oconto County Board.

Mayor Victoria Bostedt said she had asked Young's wife, JoAnne, if she was interested in the seat her husband held for about 15 years. Bostedt also said Becky Wendt had expressed interest in the post.

County Board chairman Lee Rymer had asked the city to make a recommendation, though anyone living in the district - which includes a portion of the city and a portion of the town of Oconto - can apply. Wendt apparently did, Bostedt said. ...
