Boone County Presiding Commissioner Dan Atwill Announces He Will Not Seek Re-Election in 2022 Election Cycle

September 1, 2021 – After serving the citizens of Boone County as Presiding Commissioner for nearly 10 years, Dan Atwill has announced he will not seek re-election in the 2022 Election cycle.

“I appreciate the confidence and support I have received from the citizens of Boone County since I became Presiding Commissioner in 2011. My current term will expire on December 31, 2022, and I will not be a candidate for re-election. I am proud to have been a small part of the progress Boone County has made in the past 10 years and I hope to continue helping with that for the remainder of my term.  Boone County is great because of its citizens. I have been repeatedly impressed with the willingness of citizens to give their time and effort to the many boards, commissions, and community service organizations that are a crucial part of any successful government.  The hours of effort contributed in this way create the environment in which we live and set the course for the future.”
