Mark Reiser, a resident of rural Allamakee County living between Waukon and Lansing, has announced his candidacy for the Allamakee County Board of Supervisors. One seat on the Allamakee County Board of Supervisors will be up for election in November of this year and both the Democrat and Republican ballots will each have two candidates squaring off in this year’s June 2 primary for the nomination of their respective party to then square off in that November election.

Reiser was born and raised in Allamakee County. He and his wife, Nancy, have raised four daughters on their family dairy farm that they operated for 31 years, currently working a beef and crop farming operation. “We make it a priority to keep our business local, “Reiser said. “It is important, especially in these times.”

Reiser says he has the time and interest to devote to listening to anyone living in the county who wishes to express their ideas, needs and concerns. “I will use my experiences as a business owner and operator to guide my actions,” he said. “Changing times and economic conditions must always be considered. Accessibility, understanding and compromise will help me represent all Allamakee County citizens in a responsible and fair way.”

Noting that Allamakee County is an affordable place to live and work, Reiser says maintaining that quality is very important to him. “One of my top priorities will be to know the costs of the decisions we make as a board and how these costs will be covered by the taxpayers of the county, now and in the future,” he explained. “Maintaining our secondary roads and bridges is also a priority to me because of the impact on our local economy. These roads connect us to our neighbors, allow travel between communities, transportation of goods and services, and bring others to our county.”

“We are so fortunate to live in an area where community involvement and local support are so common,” Reiser said. “We live in a beautiful area with many local attractions. I am proud to call Allamakee County my home.”

Dennis Koenig of Postville currently occupies the Allamakee County Board of Supervisors seat up for election after he was elected to his second four-year term in the November 2016 general election. Koenig announced earlier this year he will not be seeking re-election to his current Board of Supervisors seat.
