There will be changes in the leadership of Grafton next year.  Grafton Mayor Tom Thompson will not seek re-election.  Thompson began his political career in the city as an alderman in 2005, but tells The Big Z this will be his last term as mayor.

He says it's time to let someone else take the helm as he plans to spend a little more time with family.

Also up for re-election in the spring are three aldermen: Jerry Bauersachs, Flo Rowling, and Bobbie Amburg.
