Spring Election: Villages In Northern Door Getting New Presidents



Come April, there will be new presidents in the villages of Egg Harbor, Ephraim and Sister Bay. Here's a preview of the April 2 races on those village boards.

Egg Harbor

President Nancy Fisher is not seeking re-election and Trustee Joe Smith has filed for that position. Trustee Robert Dickson has filed to run again and T. C. Johnson is also seeking a seat on the village board.

Ephraim

Mike McCutcheon is the only one who's filed to run for the president's position being vacated by John Cox, who filed a declaration of non-candidacy. Village Administrator/Clerk Charity Buhr says McCutcheon is a member of the Airport Commission and recently joined the Planning Committee to get a "head start" on understanding more about the president's role.

Three candidates are running for two available trustee seats on the village board. Incumbent Jane Olson will be joined on the ballot by Michael Smith and Jim Stollenwerk. Sue Sherman is not running again.

Sister Bay

There will also be a new village president in Sister Bay, where current president Denise Bhirdo has decided not to run again. Trustee Dave Lienau has filed for the president's position.

Lienau's seat isn't up for election this spring but three other trustee seats are. Scott Baker and John Clove are running again. Ken Church is not. Village Clerk/Treasurer Christy Sully says Donna Scattergood is also running for trustee.

Sully says there's also a certified write-in candidate for trustee, Pamela Abshire. Sully says Abshire's name won't be on the ballot, but by registering as a certified write-in candidate there are less strict standards for determining which votes count.

"Normally with the write-in you've got to have the first name and the last name and you have to have it all spelled right. By being a certified write-in, if (voters) just put her first name or her last name she'll still get the vote."
