For the second time in as many years, a write-in candidate may prevail for Algoma’s 2nd District aldermanic election. Last week, incumbent Jacque Wiese filed her papers of non-candidacy for her seat on the Algoma City Council. No one else has taken nomination papers out to be circulated for the district. It is a similar situation to last year when no one officially appeared on the ballot, but Scott Meverden won the 2nd district seat as a write-in. Algoma City Clerk Jamie Jackson says there are advantages to putting in the time to file nomination papers.
Interested candidates have until January 2nd at 5 p.m. to turn in nomination papers. No new names have surfaced for spots on the Kewaunee City Council according to clerk Terri Decur. Sturgeon Bay City Clerk Stephanie Reinhardt could not be reached.
