The race for the circuit court judge position highlights your ballot in next week’s Kewaunee County election. Kimberly Hardtke and Jeffrey Wisnicky look to fill the shoes of the late Keith Mehn, who passed away at the end of 2021. Retired judges have filled in while the race between Hardtke and Wisnicky takes place. Hardtke currently serves as the assistant district attorney for Brown County and believes that experience makes her an excellent fit for the job.
Wisnicky is the current corporation counsel for Kewaunee County and hopes more people realize that being a circuit court judge is more than just sending people to jail.
Kewaunee Circuit Court Judge is just one of the several races on the ballot next Tuesday when the polls open at 7 a.m. Algoma School District residents will decide between incumbents Barb Rodgers and Joann Wiesner and newcomers Christopher Schley and Shannon Larson. Luxemburg-Casco School District voters will choose between newcomer Brandi Kollross and incumbents Robert Berceau and Linda Jonet to fill two seats. Kewaunee County residents living in District 4, which covers portions of the Towns of Luxemburg and Red River, will choose between Nellie DeBaker and Dennis Langteau for that open seat.
