Pellebon running for seat on Dane County Board of Supervisors

by | Mar 22, 2022 | 0 comments

Dana Pellebon will run unopposed for an open seat on the Dane County Board of Supervisors in the spring elections. Pellebon serves as a co-executive director of Rape Crisis Center in Dane County and has experience serving on the board of OutReach LGBTQ Community Center. 

Her campaign will focus on issues of economic justice, partnerships among local, state, and federal governments, and conservation and sustainability. She brings experience with working with people who have been homeless through her work at Porchlight.

Pellebon told Madison365 that when she saw an open seat in her district, “I started to think about what needs to happen in our community and how it is that I could help everyone. For me, that choice was to go straight to the government and say, ‘Alright. Here is where I can make some very big impacts and help people on a larger scale.’”

She enters a race in which all Dane County Board districts were redrawn after the 2020 U.S. Census. Board Chair Analiese Eicher described the updated district maps as a “natural turnover point” to the Wisconsin State Journal. For concerns ranging from personal to professional and pandemic reasons, nearly a third of county supervisors will not seek reelection
