Many Incumbents Face Re-Election Challenges

Issue Date: January 6, 2022

Electors who cast their ballots in Wisconsin's Spring non-partisan elections on Tuesday, April 5 will have choices for most municipal, county and school board offices in TIMESLand.

Primary elections, where necessary, will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 15.

In Peshtigo, there are two-way races for Mayor and District 1 alderman, and in the Town of Peshtigo a primary run-off in February will be required to select two of three candidates for the Supervisor 4 position.

Contests have developed for all three seats to be filled on Marinette City Council.

All 30 Supervisor seats on Marinette County Board expire in April, and there is competition from candidates interested in filling eight of them. Five incumbent supervisors filed declarations of non-candidacy and the remaining 25 incumbent supervisors filed nomination papers for return to office prior to the filing deadline on Tuesday, Jan. 4. District boundaries changed slightly due to re-districting after the 2020 census.
