New Bloomer mayor familiar with the job


Bloomer (WQOW) -- A winner in a mayoral race is familiar with the job.

In Bloomer, Randy Summerfield defeated incumbent mayor Janet Thur. Summerfield had been the city's mayor for 15 years before losing a recall election in 2007. He says he's been concerned about the city's infrastructure. Summerfield says he feels the city hasn't been focusing enough on upkeep, which is a big reason he ran.

"A year ago, I didn't think I'd be running. And then just seeing things that are being done, the city is doing are different than I would have done. So then I thought, well, rather than grumble about it, attempt to run and see what happens."

Summerfield says he will draw on his prior experience when he takes office. He says he doesn't anticipate making any dramatic changes.
