5/16/17 – There is a new alderwoman in the city of Beaver Dam. The common council last night heard from three potential candidates for Ward Eight. The vacancy was created by the election of Becky Glewen to the mayor’s seat. Jeff Davis, Heidi Freeby and Jane Loizzo made their pitch to the council before a vote was cast by anonymous ballot. Loizzo was selected for the open seat. The appointment is for the remaining year of the two-year term and the post will be up for re-election next spring.
