Algoma still looking for candidates

A write-in candidate may be needed for at least one seat on the Algoma City Council with the deadline to file nomination papers just a few days away. Mitch Groessl of District 3 and Jacque Wiese of District 2 filed their non-candidacy papers earlier this month. While no one has stepped up to run for Groessl’s seat, Leah Pierquet picked up nomination papers on Wednesday afternoon and will have the weekend to get enough signatures to get put on the ballot. She is vying for the seat being vacated by Wiese. Alderpersons Lee Dachelet and John Pabich have already turned in their paperwork to run for re-election.


In Sturgeon Bay, all of the incumbents have taken out nomination papers with Dan Williams (District 3), Gary Nault (District 5), and Kirsten Reeths (District 7) turning them back in.


No updates were provided for the candidates for the Kewaunee City Council. As of last week, Evan Gibbs, Jeremy Robillard, and Wendy Shelton have taken out nomination papers to replace Jeff Dworak on the city council with Shelton already turning in the necessary signatures. Richard Taylor has already returned his paperwork to replace David Kuehl, who declared non-candidacy earlier this month. Alderperson Arthur Schiller and former mayor John Blaha could be vying for the seat on the city council representing District 1. In District 3, alderperson Joe Mills is poised to face Robin Nelson in the spring election. 


All election-related paperwork is due back to municipal offices on January 5th.
