Kewaunee mayoral field getting crowded; Christman decides not to run

The city of Kewaunee could be heading to a primary for its mayoral seat as nomination papers continue to be circulated throughout the area. Current Kewaunee mayor Sandi Christman, former mayor John Blaha, and District 1 councilmember Jason Jelinek have all taken out nomination papers to hold the top position.  According to Christman's facebook account, she has now decided not to run again.  Jeff Vollenweider hopes to fill Jelinek’s seat on the city council while Janita Zimmerman and Dan Stangel look to keep their positions representing District 3 and District 4 respectively. District 2 councilmember Jamie Jackson has submitted her papers for non-candidacy. In Algoma, Mayor Wayne Schmidt and Alderperson Kevin Schmidt have turned in their nomination papers while Jake Maring is still circulating his. There is no word yet if Algoma City Council members Eugene Cleveland or Scott Meverden are running for another term ahead of the January 7th deadline to collect the necessary signatures and turn in their nomination papers.
