A mix of local law enforcement veterans, including a past sheriff and police chief, are seeking the nod as Langlade County sheriff.

Gov. Scott Walker’s office released the list of six applicants for the sheriff’s post, left vacant with the resignation of Bill Greening at the end of 2016. John Schunke is serving on an interim basis until an appointment is made.

—Joseph Stegall, a corrections officer with the Langlade County Sheriff’s Department since 2004. He ran against Greening for the sheriff’s seat in 2014.

—Sam Wurtinger, who also sought Greening’s seat in 2014. He is a deputy and recreation officer with the Forest County Sheriff’s Department, previously serving as a corrections officer in Langlade County.

— Dan Duley, a member of the Antigo Police Department since 1998, rising to the ranks of detective sergeant in 2009.

—and Mark Westen, a deputy with the Langlade County Sheriff’s Department since 1995, rising to the ranks of sergeant in 2008.
