Jon H. Ringelberg of Clare announces his candidacy for the office of
Clare County Prosecutor. He is running on the Democratic ticket.
His legal experience is that of serving as a law clerk, district judge, DoD
administrative hearings officer, and social security administrative law
judge. He also worked for 24 years as a private attorney doing
primarily criminal defense, social security disability and estate cases.
For ten years he served as Public Guardian in Clare County and has
served as a Special Prosecutor.
A resident of Clare County since 1967, Ringelberg believes he can
provide a hands-off management style in the prosecutor’s office and
put the county prosecutor back into the county courtrooms. His
breadth of legal experience would benefit the citizens of Clare County.
If elected, all net earnings of earned salary would be donated to Clare
County youth programs.
Jon H. Ringelberg and his wife, Liz, have five grown children. He has
