A lot can change in 28 years. Clayton Tucholke knows that as well as anyone. After serving for nearly three decades as the District Two county commissioner in Grant County, he is stepping down from the position. As the county commissioner for District Two, Tucholke, a Republican, represented the Alban, Vernon, Adams, Georgia, Troy and Stockholm townships.
He was elected to the position in 1988 after defeating Democratic candidate James Karels 578 votes to 331 votes. Other than the Alban township, every precinct that voted in the District Two election voted largely in favor of Tucholke.
