St. Charles Mayor Bill Spitzer announced last weekend that he will not seek a sixth term as mayor. “It’s time for a change. Every organization needs to evolve and this seemed like the appropriate time to move on to my next challenge.” Spitzer has served as St. Charles mayor since 2005, and was a longtime deputy with the Winona County Sheriff’s Department. Spitzer said that the city’s partnership with Project FINE to aid local food shelves was his greatest accomplishment as mayor.
“I look forward to what opportunities are on the horizon,” Spizter stated, though he has not announced any future plans.
