From Local Sources
JASPER — Thirteen people have filed so far to fill Dean Vonderheide’s seat on the Jasper Common Council, according to county Republican Party Chairman Mark Messmer.
A Republican caucus voted late last month for Vonderheide to be Jasper’s next mayor. He officially takes over the position Jan. 7.
Those who have filed for the now vacant council seat are: Steve Block, Adrian Engelberth, Chad Lueken, Tim Bell, Steve Messmer, Paul Lorey, Bernie Fallon, Merrill Osterman, Phil Mundy, Patty Brosmer, Levi Hulsman, Dr. Richard Moss and Justin Kluemper.
A second Republican caucus will be held in Jasper City Hall’s Pfaffenweiler Room at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 to fill the at-large council seat; the same 13 committee people who voted in the caucus to appoint Vonderheide.
Those interested in finishing the last year of Vonderheide’s council term must complete a candidacy form, CEB-5, and send it to Messmer by 9 a.m. Wednesday; Messmer’s home address is 795 E. Scherle Lane, Jasper. The forms are available at the Dubois County Clerk’s office in the Dubois County Courthouse or at Messmer’s office at 402 Third Ave., Jasper. Candidates must live in the city of Jasper and are required to have voted in a Republican primary the last time they voted in a primary election.
