January 7, 2014
The developing races...
Two of Carroll County's five supervisors seats are up for election in November.
Dan Nieland, a Breda Democrat, will not seek re-election in the 2nd District. Dean Schettler, a Breda Democrat, announced today that he will run for the seat.
Marty Danzer, a Carroll Democrat, is seeking re-election in the 4th District.
The seats now held by Carroll Republicans Neil Bock and Mark Beardmore and Templeton Democrat Gene Meiners are not up for election until the 2016 cycle.
Supervisor Marty Danzer, a Carroll Democrat, said this morning that he would run for a fourth four-year term on the board.
Danzer, 52, represents the 4th District, which covers southeastern Carroll County and includes Coon Rapids, Glidden, Dedham, Willey and the unincorporated area generally south of U.S. 30 and east of the City of Carroll.
"I still have the drive," Danzer said in an interview at The Daily Times Herald offices. "I enjoy working with people. That's part of my job."
Danzer said continuing changes with regional mental-health services and funding issues with the mix of federal, state and local dollars for county roads demand both attention and expertise.
"There's a lot of challenges there," he said.
Danzer, an independent grain-and-livestock operator, farms the land on which he was born southeast of Carroll. It's been in his family since 1950.
A 1979 graduate of Kuemper Catholic High School, Danzer went on to earn an associate's in applied science degree in agriculture from Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs.
Danzer and his wife, Lisa, have three children: Courtney, 23, and Heather, 20, students at Iowa State University; and Nathan, 15, a sophomore at Carroll High School.
Danzer ran unopposed in his last re-election in 2010.
