County offices have uncontested races this year

Tuesday, April 2, 2002

Uncontested races for this year's county offices include county attorney and county treasurer.

Republican Phil Havens is running unopposed for a third term as county attorney. It is a position where he feels he can do something for the citizens of Buena Vista County.

"I've found the work to be satisfying and exciting," he said. "It's a position in which you can have a fairly significant impact on the community, and I hope it's a positive one."

He feels he has represented the state of Iowa well in criminal cases. "We've tried to achieve some measure of justice in cases. I think we've done that," he said.

Democrat Kathy Bach runs unopposed for a third term as county treasurer. Before coming to public office, she worked for more than 20 years with the county.

"I decided to run again because I like my job, and I want to continue to serve the residents of the county," Bach said. "There are some new challenges we're going to face, but we have a good office staff and we'll meet them head on."
