Primary Election Tuesday For Beaver Dam Municipal Judge

(Beaver Dam) There is a primary election Tuesday in the race for the next municipal judge in Beaver Dam. The multi-jurisdictional court handles municipal matters or traffic infractions for the city and town of Beaver Dam, the city of Mayville, city of Waupun, and the joint police department of Neosho, Rubicon, and Ashippun.  

Voters only in those municipalities will see the race on their ballots. Maryann Schacht served as attorney and prosecutor for the city of Beaver Dam for many years. 

“I would appreciate your vote to give me the opportunity to continue the practice of law which I have loved and I have been dedicated to for a long period of time,” says Schacht. “Law is something that I will never cease to exercise my mind and continue to work.” 

Jim Brace has 29 years of experience in the criminal justice field. 

“I’m retired…retired June of last year, I would have the time to invest in to this position,” says Brace. “I have the education and I really look forward [to] solving these traffic matters, the municipal ordinance violations. Being fair, firm, and consistent and hold everybody accountable for their actions.”  

Todd Snow has been an attorney for the past 22 years. 

“I have the experience necessary to run an efficient courtroom,” says Snow. “I’ll be fair, unbiased, and I’ll treat everyone the way they would like to be treated. And I’ll follow the law…my overarching theme is fairness and I would appreciate everyone’s vote.”  

The top two vote getters will advance to the April 4th ballot.

Also, voters in Wards One and Two in the city of Watertown will see an aldermanic race on their ballots. Joel Blase, Dana Davis, and Joe Kallas are all vying for the District One seat on the common council.
