The Village of Lannon Board sees two new faces

Village of Lannon – Voters decided to overhaul the Lannon Village Board in last week's race, bringing in two newcomers without any political experience and ousting two members who served multiple terms.

Wayne Rummel and Robb Moore were the newcomers, and incumbents Ron Dutcher and Daryl Fiene lost their seats. Dutcher was on the Village Board for 14 years, while Fiene served for four years.

Ronald Nellis was the only incumbent to retain his seat. He has been on the board three years.

The vote totals, according to unofficial results:

✔Wayne Rummel120

✔Ronald Nellis (inc.)106

✔Robb Moore84

Ron Dutcher (inc.)77

Daryl Fiene (inc.)65

Jerry Newman41

Voter turn-out was strong, Clerk-Treasurer Brenda Klemmer said, with about 25 percent of the village's registered voters casting ballots.

Rummel ran on a platform of limiting government interference on important issues in the community.

"I am very pleased," Rummel said of the election results. "I think it's clear the majority of people in this community wanted a change."

But Rummel admits he was "pleasantly surprised" by the reality he came in as the top vote-getter in the six-person race for the three open positions.

"It didn't expect to do that well, to be honest," he said. "I appreciate the votes of confidence, and all the support I received the past few months."

Attempts to reach Nellis and Moore – second- and third-place winners, respectively – were unsuccessful by the Sun's deadline.

Nellis, who served as chief of the Lannon Fire Department for more than 20 years, trumpeted a desire to change village policies and help foster more of a development friendly climate.

"Our property base needs to grow if we're going to keep taxes low," Nellis said last month.

Moore expressed a desire to make a difference in a community he and his family settled down in a few years ago. Last month, Moore said he believes business growth is an important issue in the community, and he wanted to bring a fresh perspective to the board.

"I think some of the people (on the current board) have gotten set in their ways, and I think it's time for a change," Moore said in an interview last month. "I can bring a youthful presence to the board."
