Contested elections hard to find in local city council races

You could see some new faces on area city councils this spring based on the early returns.


That is undoubtedly true in Algoma, where both John Pabich (District 1) and Steve Lautenbach (District 3) have turned in their declarations of non-candidacy.  District 2 alderperson Midge Swedberg and District 4 alderperson Lee Dachelet are planning to run again for their current seats. Algoma City Clerk Erin Mueller says she has had a few people come in and pick up the necessary paperwork.


Sturgeon Bay may not see any change as incumbents Helen Bacon (District 1), Dan Williams (District 3), Gary Nault (District 5), and Kirsten Reeths (District 7) are the only ones to have taken nomination papers out in their bids for re-election.


Kewaunee is the only one with a potential contested election as Joe Mills looks to reclaim his seat from District 3 alderperson, Robin Nelson. No one has submitted paperwork to run for the seat being vacated by District 4 alderperson Richard Taylor.


Interested candidates have until January 3rd at 5 p.m. to return the necessary paperwork to run for office in the spring election. If needed, a spring primary will occur on February 21st before the general election slated for April 4th.
