El Dorado County








The fact that he is now serving his fourth consecutive elective term as clerk and auditor of Eldorado County, is indicative of the reputation and position which Arthur J. Koletzke enjoys in his home community. He has managed the affairs of his office with consummate skill and with eminent satisfaction to the citizens who cast their ballots at election time. Mr. Koletzke has further popularized himself by his public-spirited and loyal cooperation in movements of local import, which he deems beneficial to his city and county.

Arthur J. Koletzke was born in Placerville, March 12, 1885, a son of A. H. and Louise (Wagner) Koletzke. The father came to California by the Panama route, and settled in Eldorado county in the late 50s. Here he engaged in mining, and died in 1913. His widow survived him until 1925.

Arthur J. Koletzke studied in the local grade and high schools, then for eight years worked as a bookkeeper for a Placerville concern. He was first appointed county clerk and auditor to fill out an unexpired term, then was duly elected to the office, which honor has been thrice repeated by the electors of Eldorado county. Mr. Koletzke is a thirty-second degree Mason, is past master of the blue lodge, and belongs to the Mystic Shrine. He is a member and past president of Placerville Parlor, No. 9, Native Sons of the Golden West, and also belongs to the Lions Club and the Duck Club. Golf is his favorite sport.
