Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson faces two challengers in primary | #Education | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson will face a challenge from two candidates as he seeks a fourth consecutive four-year term in office.

Nelson, Outagamie County Board member Justin Krueger and former board member Kevin Sturn all filed nomination papers to run for county executive. The deadline was Tuesday.

With three candidates, a primary election will be held Feb. 21 to narrow the field to two candidates for the April 4 election.

Nelson, 46, of Appleton first was elected as county executive in 2011, when he defeated Jack Voight. Nelson ran unopposed in 2015 and 2019. He said his record speaks for itself.

“We have been able to accomplish a triple-A (Aaa) bond rating for 12 years,” Nelson told The Post-Crescent. “We’ve had a declining tax rate for eight years. We’ve fully funded all of our services, and the airport is worth almost $800 million a year (in economic activity), supporting about 3,000 jobs directly and indirectly. I’m proud of all that we have accomplished.”
