Severson to run for Rock County Clerk of Courts

A former member of the Janesville School Board says he's running for Rock County Clerk of Courts.
Peter Severson says he's taking a leave of absence from his state job to run for office.

Severson says his job working on the Wisconsin Supreme Court's Consolidated Courts Automation Program has prepared him to run for the position.

Janesville resident Jackie Gackstatter who works in the clerk of courts office is the only other person to declare they intend to run.
