The Spring elections for mostly local offices are coming up and election forms are due by January 2nd. Here’s what we know so far. For the West Bend School Board, Randy Marquardt and Dave Weigand are up. Marquardt has filed for reelection. Weigand is not running for reelection (he has a nice column in the local paper today). Tim Stepanski has taken out papers to run again.
For the West Bend City Council, we have this from Judy Steffes:
A second person has filed papers to run for alderman in West Bend’s District 6. Ryan Schneeberger filed declaration-of-candidacy papers on 12-12-2012. Schneeberger joins retired West Bend police Lt. Steve Hoogester in vying for the seat being left vacant by incumbent alderman Michael Schlotfeldt who will not run for another term. All candidates in the spring election must collect a minimum of 20 signatures; forms are due by Jan. 2.
City clerk Amy Reuteman said District 4 alderman Randy Koehler has already returned nomination papers and District 8 Alderman Roger Kist has turned in campaign finance, declaration of candidacy and nomination papers and District 2 alderman Steve Hutchins turned in his nomination papers this week. A spring election is set for April 2. If a primary is needed, it will be Feb. 19. In the city of West Bend even-numbered aldermanic districts are up for election.
I expect that we’ll have several last-minute entries into the races.
