Chickasaw County has appointed a temporary replacement to fill the District 1 Supervisor position that became vacant earlier this month with the passing of Rick Holthaus.
The Chickasaw County Committee of Officers, including Auditor Stephanie Mashek, Treasurer Sue Breitbach and Recorder Shirley Troyna, convened Tuesday and appointed Steven Breitbach of Jerico to take over the post. Breitbach was sworn in as District 1 Supervisor and will serve in that capacity until the special election on March 1st.
Holthaus, from Alta Vista, was elected to the Board of Supervisors in November 2020 and his term runs through December 31st, 2024. The special election will decide who will fill out the remainder of that term.
