Algoma residents living in the city’s third aldermanic district could have a job if they choose to accept it. Algoma city clerk Jamie Jackson expects current District 3 alderperson Eugene Cleveland to sign his Notice of Non-Candidacy as soon as Friday. Mayor Wayne Schmidt and First District Alderperson Kevin Schmidt have already turned in their nomination papers while Scott Meverden is still circulating his to keep his seat representing the Second District. If no one ends up turning in the necessary paperwork before the January 7th deadline, Jackson says write-in candidates are eligible.
Jackson adds potential candidates can register at city hall as a write-in so their name can be distributed at the polling place on Election Day. City Clerks for Kewaunee and Sturgeon Bay could not be reached on Friday.
