Mayor Singewald got a group together to make sure Wellington's new administrator was "the people's decision"

After three years on the Wellington board of trustees, Tim Singewald became mayor last fall, completing former mayor Jack Brinkhoff’s term which ends in April 2018. Singewald takes seriously the task of representing the people of Wellington and managing the rapid growth of the town in the best way possible.

After 16 years on the job and with many significant accomplishments to be proud of, former town administrator Larry Lorentzen turned over the reins to incoming administrator Ed Cannon in April. Lorentzen may stay on staff as a consultant.

Singewald orchestrated a citizens’ committee made up of board chairs from a wide range of town boards to provide input on the selection of the new town administrator.

“It’s the first time in Wellington that such a group has come together to make a monumental change,” Singewald said. “The selection of the new administrator was the people’s decision.”

Singewald looks forward to networking with the community as change occurs during the months to come. He has not made a decision about whether or not he will run for office when his term is up next year. “I haven’t been fishing for months,” he said. “I’ve been working 60 hours a week at this job.”
