Jim Ruetz named Oak Creek's District 3 alderman

May 15, 2012

The Oak Creek Common Council has appointed Jim Ruetz alderman of District 3.

Ruetz is no stranger to public service, as he has served on the city's Community Development Authority for nine years.

He holds a Master's of Business Administration from the University of Chicago and a bachelor's in geography-urban planning from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, as well as an associate's degree in ocean engineering from the University of Florida Institute of Technology.

Ruetz is the president and general manager of All Fasteners Inc./All Tool Sales Inc. in Racine.

He has lived in Oak Creek for 26 years and within District 3 for 14 years.

The 3rd District aldermanic seat was vacated when Stephen Scaffidi was elected mayor. Ruetz will serve the remainder of the term, which will expire April 13, when the post will be filled by election.
