Few Challenges in April 4 Election, Primary in Town of Peshtigo Feb. 21

Every municipality and every school district in Wisconsin has positions to be filled in elections to be held on Tuesday, April 4. Deadline for filing nomination papers was 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3. While there is no competition in most districts, some very interesting races have developed in others.

There will be a primary election on Tuesday, Feb. 21 in the Town of Peshtigo to determine which two of three candidates for town chair and Supervisor 1 posts will be on the April 4 ballot.

City Candidates

Marinette


In the City of Marinette there is no candidate for the Ward 7 Alderman position held by Pam Goes. Goes filed a certificate of non-candidacy and no one else has come forward.

Incumbents seeking reelection unopposed are Municipal Court Judge Carl Mercier and Alderman John Marx, Ward No. 3.

William Alwin seeks to unseat incumbent 8th Ward Alderman William Jason Flatt.

Jane Kostura is challenging Peter Noppenberg for the 6th District Alderman position. This is an abbreviated 1-year term that expires in April of 2018. Noppenberg was appointed to fill the vacancy left when former incumbent Dennis Colburn resigned last year.

Peshtigo

Incumbent alderpersons have all filed for return to office. They are District 1, Brigitte Schmidt, District 2 Michael Behnke and District 3, Debbie Sievert. Behnke and Sievert are unopposed. Schmidt faces a challenge from Richard Berth, who served on City Council for a time after being appointed to fill a vacancy left when Tim Colburn moved out of the city. Berth resigned in November, but is now seeking to return to City Council and fill the chair currently held by Schmidt. Jillian Schuette, who was appointed in December to replace Berth, participated in her first meeting as an alderman on Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Niagara

Mayor George Bousley along with alderpersons Teresa West and Michael Darne have filed papers for re-election on April 4. Alderperson Glenn Lantagne is not a candidate for return to his seat.

No primary is required for the Supervisor 2 position, but there is competition, as Duane Panske seeks to unseat incumbent Supervisor Mark Monnette.
