Nyquist named commissioner chairman; no decision on homeless site
January 12, 2022
Roger Nyquist was elected chairman of the Linn County Board of Commissioners for the 20th year Tuesday morning, Jan. 4, during the board's first meeting of 2022.
Commissioner Will Tucker will serve as vice-chair.
Tucker and fellow commissioner Sherrie Sprenger said they'd like to see the chairmanship rotate among board members in 2023, as had once been a longstanding tradition. Tucker praised Nyquist's leadership, saying he's done "an exceptional job."
Sprenger agreed and said rotating the chairmanship would provide the board an opportunity to see things "with fresh eyes."
