The Shawano County Board rejected two appointments that were made by County Board Chairman Jerry Edrmann. The proposal was to replace two members of the Human Services Board, whose terms were ending.
Erdmann recommended replacing Marshall Giese with his brother Rick Giese and Herb Tauchen with Lynnae Zahringer, but some members of the board questioned that decision.
Erdmann said the two he was replacing did not show an interest in continuing to serve. Some of the board felt that by replacing Giese with his brother was a sign of disrespect to veterans, and would cause drama in the Giese family as the brothers were known for being distant with each other.
Zahringer was formally on the Human Services Board before losing her County Board election. Erdmann said he would bring some names forward at a future meeting.
