Madison County Treasurer Kurt Prenzler tells The Big Z there is a conflict of interest between the current county board chairman and the county's purchasing agent. Prenzler says county vendors have donated tens of thousands of dollars to the county board chairman's re-election campaign, and his campaign treasurer is also the county's purchasing director.

Prenzler tells The Big Z he has contacted the county's ethics advisor to evaluate the purchasing director's relationship with the board chairman's campaign. Prenzler is running for county board chairman in the fall, trying to unseat Dunstan.
