Thomas Cretney is the new supervisor for the town of Franklin, thanks to his name being pulled out of a hat on Tuesday morning. Cretney and John Wochos both received 102 votes in last Tuesday’s election. Kewaunee County Clerk Jamie Annoye told Door CountyDailyNews.com that the recount of votes confirmed a tie before the drawing was held at the administrative building. Cretney says his decision to run for the Kewaunee County Board was a last-minute decision.
Cretney, 66, is a retired aerospace engineer and consultant. He will be taking his position as the new supervisor for District 10 at the next Kewaunee Count Board meeting on April 24.
