Rettig for supervisor?

By Gregg HenniganRettig

IOWA CITY — Janelle Rettig is getting some (early) love for a possible run for a seat on the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.

A Facebook group with 141 members, as of this morning, has formed to encourage her to run. Current Supervisor Rod Sullivan is a member, as is county Auditor Tom Slockett and county Recorder Kim Painter. Other notable names are state Rep. Mary Mascher, Iowa City Council members Mike Wright and Ross Wilburn and Coralville council member Tom Gill.

Retigg said she is “in the exploratory mode” and gathering information on a possible run.

“I’m grateful for the early encouragement,” she said of the Facebook group.

The supervisors election isn’t until next year, when the seats currently held by Sally Stutsman and Larry Meyers are up for reelection.

In Johnson County, the real race for supervisor usually is the Democratic primary, which will be in June 2010.  A Republican has not served as a Johnson County supervisor since 1962.
