Incumbents Face Re-Election Challenges on Tuesday, April 5

Issue Date: April 3, 2022

Electors all across Wisconsin will be going to the polls on Tuesday, April 5 to cast their ballots in Wisconsin's Spring non-partisan elections. Many Marinette County voters will be using the new Dominion voting machines for the first time. While there are many uncontested races in TIMESLand, voters will have choices for many of the municipal, county and school board offices.

In the City of Peshtigo, incumbent Mayor Cathi Malke faces a challenge from District 1 Alderman Richard H. Berth III, who is also on the ballot for return to his Alderman position, with a challenge from Chris Rohde.

In the Town of Peshtigo John B. Kowalski challenges incumbent Kristen Edgar for the Supervisor 4 position.

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

Towns with 5-member boards will be filling two of their Supervisor positions. These are the Towns of Peshtigo, Pound, Stephenson and Wausaukee. There is competition in the towns of Peshtigo and Pound.

In the Town of Stephenson electors are asked to respond to a referendum asking if the town can exceed the state-imposed property tax levy limit by $433,132 for each fiscal year going forward to provide more money for road repairs and maintenance. This would be a 47.879 percent increase in the town levy for 2023. If the referendum fails, the maximum increase would be 1.406 percent, which would result in a total levy of $1,227,768 for town purposes in 2023.

In Goodman-Armstrong Creek School District, in addition to electing board members, there will be a referendum asking to authorize the district to exceed the state-imposed property tax levy limits by $750,000 each year for three years, starting with the 2022-2023 school year, to pay operating and maintenance costs.

All 30 Supervisor seats on Marinette County Board expire in April, and there is competition from candidates interested in filling seven of them. District boundaries changed slightly due to re-districting after the 2020 census.

Voters in all districts are reminded that a photo ID is required, and can be obtained without charge from the Division of Motor Vehicles. Electors can register at the polling place.

TOWNS:

There are town board elections this year only in towns with 5-member boards. This year, there is competition only in Town of Pound and Town of Peshtigo.

Town of Peshtigo: Kayla Furton is seeking re-election for Supervisor 3 unopposed. Kristen Edger, looking to return as Supervisor 4, faces a challenge from John B. Kowalski.

Town of Pound: Both incumbent supervisors, Dave Pellman and Mike Zeitler, are seeking re-election. Challenging for a spot as Supervisor is Glenn Broderick. Broderick's name is also on the ballot for return to office as Marinette County Board Supervisor from District 15.

Town of Stephenson: Jeffrey Lieuwen is running for Supervisor 2, and Andrew Rogers for Supervisor 4. Both are incumbents, and neither has competition. Electors are being asked to allow the town to exceed the state-imposed property tax levy limit by $433,132 for each fiscal year going forward to provide more money for road repairs and maintenance. This would mean a 47.879 percent increase in the town levy for 2023. If the referendum fails, the maximum increase would be 1.406 percent, which would result in a total levy of $1,227,768 for all town purposes in 2023.

Town of Wausaukee: Supervisor 3 incumbent Matthew R. Jicha and Supervisor 4 incumbent Dennis Taylor are unopposed for return to office.

VILLAGES:

Village of Coleman: There are three Trustee positions open for re-election. Sean Van Ermen and Jeffrey Gosa are both seeking offices. Timothy Gould filed for non-candidacy. However, Phillip Risner is running for the third seat open.

Village of Crivitz: There are three spots open for Trustee, but only two candidates seeking to fill them. Incumbents Ross Behrendt and Stewart Swanson both filed for re-election. Michael Strandt filed non-candidacy papers and will not be on the April ballot.

Village of Pound: Wayne Gross filed non-candidacy for his trustee position. Incumbent Mary Meyer will seek re-election, and two new candidates, Bethany Navis and Morgan Messenger, will also be on the ballot to fill the two trustee positions.

Village of Wausaukee: Incumbents Steve Stumbris and James Feldmann filed for re-election. The third incumbent, Derrick McGee, filed non-candidacy papers. Keith Frank, Jr. has filed for the third open spot.

City of Peshtigo: Mayor Cathi Malke is being challenged by Rick Berth, who is currently Alderperson for District 1. Berth is also a candidate for return to that position, and is being challenged by political newcomer Chris Rohde. If Berth wins both positions and accepts the office of mayor, he would need to appoint someone to replace him in the City Council position. District 2 Alderperson John Berendt filed non-candidacy papers and Allen England is unopposed as a candidate for that post. In District 3, incumbent Alderperson Katie Berman is unopposed for re-election.

SCHOOL DISTRICTS:

The other two incumbents, Barb Van Drisse and Jeremy Hoida are seeking return to office. Newcomer Geoff Seefeldt is the third candidate.

Crivitz: There are five candidates for the three openings on the Crivitz School Board. All three incumbents - Amy Grandaw, Michael Frievalt and Kayla Gauthier-Ihde - are seeking return to office, and two challengers - Sonny Grease and Cory L. Sotka - are looking to get the job.

Goodman-Armstrong Creek: Both incumbents are seeking the two School Board spots without opposition. They are Timothy Barribeau and Laura Klescewski. Electors of the school district also are asked to vote on a referendum that would authorize the district to exceed the state-imposed property tax levy limits by $750,000 each year for three years, starting with the 2022-2023 school year, to pay for operation and maintenance costs for the district.

Lena: Incumbents Edward Huberty and Timothy A. Goldschmidt are seeking re-election. They have no challengers.

Marinette: There are three openings and five candidates seeking to fill them. Incumbents Eric Craver, Terri Florek and Chuck Rowell are challenged by Todd Oleszak and Martin Shaw.

Niagara: This district has three seats to be filled and three candidates seeking to fill them, so there is no competition. Incumbents Ann Brasure and Lisa Swanson are seeking re-election, and Kimberly Champeau-Dumke seeks to fill the vacancy left by Patti Sparapani, who is not seeking return to office.

Peshtigo: Peshtigo has three openings for Board members and four candidates. All three incumbents are seeking re-election. They are Seat #2-Jenni Schwittay, #3-Joe Nault, both unopposed, and #4-Kelly Jones, who faces a challenge from Kevin Roeder.
