Four running for three seats on Clinton Village Board
CLINTON Four candidates—Ronald Torkilson, Dina Knibbs, Victoria Baker and Mary A. Jensen—are seeking three seats on the Clinton Village Board.
Only Torkilson responded to a Gazette request for information:
Ronald Torkilson (I)
Address: 608 Milwaukee St., Clinton.
Job: Retired. Also has been the organist for Jefferson Prairie Church for more than 40 years.
Education: Graduated from Clinton High School in 1969 and received an agriculture degree from Blackhawk Technical College in 1971.
Community service: Volunteers as a driver for Clinton EMS and a driver for the Clinton Senior Center.
Elected posts: Clinton Village Board member since 2005.
Major campaign issues: “I feel a large issue is going to be for the (village) board to work with the library board to come up with a plan for the space needs. The Clinton Library is a very important part of the village. Also, keeping the downtown area alive with full spaces and needs for the community is important.”
