Frank has served on the commission for two years. Current mayor Tim Helbling chose not to run again at the end of his term.
"I have big shoes to fill with Tim. Am I willing to do my homework to take his place? Yes, I am. Will I be able to fill his shoes? Probably not. But am I willing to give it my best? Yes, I am," Van Beek said.
