Marshall County Commissioner Jack Roose has withdrawn his bid for another run at his District 1 seat in this year’s election.
Roose has served two terms as a commissioner. In an official release, Roose stated that he did file his intention to run for another term but not long after he filed, he began “struggling” with his decision. The issue of term limitations began filling his thoughts and after much consideration, he has decided to withdraw from the race.
He encouraged the candidate who is elected in the Marshall County Commissioner District 1 seat to be able to properly dedicate time to the position as it is not easy and it is not “part-time”.
Roose stated that he has done his best to preserve the dignity of the office and has been proud to be a part of many changes and advancements in the county during the time he has been in office.
This leaves four people to run for Roose’s seat. Those Republican candidates include Steven Engel, Kurt Garner, Heath Thornton and Stanley Klotz.
