Contested races for Door County school boards

Three of the four Door County school boards will be decided by your votes in 2019. Gibraltar and Southern Door will each hold a primary on February 19th since there are more than two people running for each seat. The candidate with the fewest amount of votes will not make it to the April 2nd election. Sturgeon Bay has four open slots on the school board which is unusual but not unprecedented. 


Gibraltar School Board:


There are two open seats on the Gibraltar School Board and five candidates running. The candidates are Mike Peot (incumbent), Ray Einhorn, Don Helm, Brett Reetz, and Carole Vande Walle. Incumbent Britt Maltby chose not to run. The primary will be held on February 19th.


Sevastopol School Board:


There are two open seats and two candidates running. The candidates are David Kacmarynski and Cyndi Zellner-Ehlers.


Southern Door School Board:


There are five candidates running for two open school board spots. The candidates are Milly Gonzales, Penny C. Price, George Sincock, Matthew Tassoul, and Adam Urban. The primary will be held on February 19th.


Sturgeon Bay School Board:


There are four open school board spots. Three of the spots are normal three-year terms and the other is a one-year term. John Hauser left the school board after the 2017-2018 school with two years left on his term. He was replaced by Mike Stefani. Four candidates are running for the four spots. The top three vote-getters will get three-year terms and the candidate with the least amount of votes will get the one-year term. The four candidates are Stefani, Scott Alger, Beth Chisholm, and Chad Hougaard. The election will be held on April 2nd.
