It appears there will now be at least three names on the ballot running for Alton Mayor in April. Alton Police Lieutenant Dan Rauschkolb posted this (Wednesday) morning on his Facebook page his intentions to run for mayor. Rauschkolb plans an official announcement and campaign kick-off event in a couple of weeks.
Rauschkolb is 46-years-old and a 22-year veteran of the Alton Police Department. He began his career in December of 1994, and was promoted from Sergeant to Lieutenant in 2013. Rauschkolb joins local businessman Scott Dixon and current Mayor Brant Walker in the race that will be decided in the spring.
