An Adams resident is looking to take his farming and service experience to a county seat.

Steven Reinartz filed to run against incumbent Doug Groh for auditor-treasurer earlier this week.

Reinartz had been a dairy farmer for many years but recently sold his dairy cows. He still farms and raises beef cattle.

Though this is his first bid for elected office, Reinartz has been involved with Sacred Heart Church, the 4-H advisory board, the Adams Booster Club and other organizations.

“I’ve always been real active in the community,” he said.

Reinartz has budgeting and records experience through his farm, his church finance council and volunteer work with other organizations.

“I’ve had experience with budgeting,” he said.

He also said he’s willing to meet the new challenges of the office.

“I’m willing to try and learn new things,” he said.

Reinartz and his wife, Darcey, have three children. Reinartz is not directly related to Commissioner Jerry Reinartz, who is unopposed in his bid for a second term.
