Voters to Fill School, Town, City, Village Offices April 4

Every municipality and every school district in Wisconsin has positions to be filled in elections to be held on Tuesday, April 4. There also is a ballot race for State Superintendent of Schools between long-time incumbent Tony Evers, widely recognized as the more liberal candidate, is backed by teachers and many legislators from the Democratic Party, and Lowell Holtz.

Evers is generally supported by Democrats, teachers unions and other public school advocates. Holtz, a former Peshtigo High School Principal and former superintendent of the Beloit School District, and backed by numerous conservative groups and about two dozen Republican state lawmakers.

On the local scene, there is little competition for most of the offices. Several TIMESland municipalities have no candidates for some offices, while a few have some hotly contested races. In the majority of posts in municipalities and school districts, incumbents are seeking reelection without opposition.

City Candidates

City of Marinette

In the City of Marinette there is no candidate for the Ward 7 Alderman position being vacated by by Pam Goes. Goes filed a certificate of non-candidacy and no one else filed for the office, which will be filled by write-in vote.

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

In the 8th Ward, William Alwin seeks to unseat incumbent 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.

City of 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 when Tim Colburn moved out of the city. Berth resigned in November, and Jillian Schutte was appointed to replace him. Berth is now seeking to return to City Council and fill the District 1 chair currently held by Schmidt.
