Cody Paszek of Grenville filed a petition to represent District 5, a seat being vacated by the retirement of Roger Kulesa. Cody ran unopposed for this seat; he will begin his service to the members of Lake Region immediately.
Cody is following in the footsteps of his grandfather, the late Edwin Paszek, both in his love for farming and his desire to serve his fellow members as director on the Lake Region board. Paszek is a 5th generation farmer in the Grenville area. He grew up on the farm, the original family homestead northwest of Pickerel Lake. Cody and his wife Amanda have bought the farmstead and have built a new home there. Besides farming, Cody enjoys all things outdoors spending time hunting, fishing, and hanging out at the lake with family and friends. He is active in his community, as a member of St. Joseph church in Grenville, and is the Kosciusko Township Treasurer.
