Dodge County Commission race to be decided today

The two candidates remaining in the election to replace late Dodge County District 3 Commissioner Edwin Burnham square off in today’s runoff.

Burnham died in December with a year left in his term. His son, Timmy Burnham, is one of the candidates. Brian Watkins is the other candidate vying for the post.

Watkins and Burnham were among the field of four candidates in a March 16 special election. Watkins finished with 451 votes, and Burnham received 303. The winner of today’s election, if he chooses to seek re-election, will have to run for the post again this fall.
