Larry Kerkstra

“We lost a dear friend in Mike LaGesse,” Board Chairman Andy Wheeler said. “There’s no way you can actually replace him on the board. He’d been here it seems like since the county was created. He can smile on that from above.

“Larry Kerkstra is the duly recommended candidate from the Democrat Central Committee, he said. “He’s running for this office, so to fill out the rest of the term until November that’s where he’s at right now on the board. We welcome him.”

Kerkstra said he was approached about filling the vacancy.

“They asked if I’d help out, and I volunteered,” he said. “I’ll do the best job I can. ... Anything I can do to help, I’m here.”
