The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will have plenty of new faces this spring after Mayor Thad Birmingham and District 1 alderperson Kelly Catarozoli filed their non-candidacy papers. They joined District 3 alderperson David Ward and District 5 alderperson Barb Allmann who opted to not run for their current posts earlier this month. Ward has returned his nomination papers to run for mayor along Shawn Fairchild. In District 1, Helen Bacon has returned her nomination papers while Dawn Goodban still has hers out. Dan Williams has turned in his paperwork for the District 3 aldermanic district with Sean Linnan still collecting signatures. In District 5, Sarah Evenson is still collecting signatures to see if she can run against Gary Nault. District 7 alderperson Laurel Hauser is the only incumbent trying to run in the spring election while Ryan Herlache has papers out and Kirsten McFarlin has hers turned in. Candidates have until January 2nd to file their nomination papers.
