Leavy

BELOIT - Beloit City Councilor Kevin Leavy might just be the busiest public servant in Rock County, with the longtime councilor now appointed as a member of the Rock County Board of Supervisors.

Leavy replaces District 13 board member Norvain Pleasant following his resignation in July. According to Rock County Board Chair Russ Podzilni, Pleasant stepped down due to a personal matter.

District 13 covers wards 8, 13, 14 and 15 in the City of Beloit.

Leavy said in an interview with the Beloit Daily News he will remain on the Beloit City Council, and plans to run for both offices in the April 2020 election.

"I've been interested in what the county does and this gives me a perspective of how the county works together with municipalities and school districts for the betterment of our community," Leavy said.

The 56-year-old Beloit native and father of four has built strong ties to the area, while working as a food service manager at Aramark for 15 years.

Leavy's history of public service stretches back three decades during time on the Beloit School District Board of Education before running for council in 2003. He served for multiple years as council president and vice president, before taking a leave from the public eye only to return in a successful re-election bid in 2016.

"(Leavy) will be an asset to the board," Podzilni said.
