No movement on council races as deadline looms

City clerks in Algoma, Kewaunee, and Sturgeon Bay say no new names have taken out nomination papers, but there are still many to be returned before Wednesday’s deadline.


Papers are still out in Sturgeon Bay for potential council candidates Ryan Herlache, Sarah Evenson, Sean Linnan, Laurel Hauser, and Dawn Goodban. A potential primary is possible in District 7 if Hauser and Herlache join Kirsten McFarlin on the ballot.


Algoma could have to rely on a write-in candidate to fill its open seat in District 2 after Jacque Wiese filed her non-candidacy papers earlier this month.


Kewaunee’s incumbent council members Art Schiller, Jeff Dworak, and David Kuehl are poised to make returns to their seats with Joe Mills replacing John Griffith in the third district.


Nomination papers are due back by 5 p.m. January 2nd
