I talked with Heidi Carvin last week and we may have only one candidate for the three open seats on the School Board as well. Not so very auspicious is it?
According to city clerk Judy Walton, the election looks like this so
far based on papers that have been filed:
--Mayor Sandy Decker, 143 W. Main St., will seek a second two-year term.
--First district alderman and council president Mason Braunschweig, 590 W. Main St., will seek a second two-year term.
--Fourth district alderman John Sornson, 249 Franklin St., will seek reelection for a two-year term.
--Former mayor and alderwoman Janis Ringhand, 412 Fowler Circle, will run for the second district seat. Current second district alderman Fred Juergens, 401 Badger Drive, has not filed papers yet, but he said he won't seek reelection.
--Third district alderman Tony Wyse, 112 Grove St., has not filed papers yet, but said he plans to seek office again.
--Judge Thomas Alisankus will seek reelection for a four-year term.
Candidates must file papers with Walton by 5 p.m. on Jan. 2 at city
hall, 31 S. Madison St.
Add to that the fact that Steve Eager isn't running for re-election to District 1 Supervisor and there may not be a need for any candidate forums in the Spring.
Update: It looks as if Karen Aikman will be making a run for her former seat in the 3rd District against Tony Wyse.
Update 2: Janis Ringhand will be busy this Spring running for the Supervisor seat vacated by Steve Eager as well as for 2nd District Alder.
