Spring Election: City Council Races

(Mayville) Tuesday was the deadline to run in the spring election. There will be a race for mayor in the city of Mayville where incumbent Rob Boelk is not seeking re-election. Mike Jackson and John Guinn will face each other on the April ballot. Incumbent alderpersons Bob Smith and Kim Olson are running unopposed while Gene Frings filed non-candidacy leaving no one on the ballot in Ward Four.

There will be a new mayor in Horicon with incumbent Jim Grigg not seeking another term. District One Alderperson Joshua Maas submitted paperwork to run for mayor. Two other incumbent Horicon alderpersons are seeking re-election: Richard Marshke and Forrest Frami plan on returning while incumbent Harold “Buzz” Vanderhei filed non-candidacy and no one else has expressed interest in his District Three seat.

Waupun will also see a new mayor. With Julie Nickel departing, Rohn Bishop is the lone candidate on the ballot for Waupun mayor. All three incumbent alderpersons in Waupun are running again without opposition.

There will be at least three new faces on the Beaver Dam Common Council come spring. Redistricting forced Therese Henricksen out of her current district and she opted not to run in her new district. Incumbents Kara Nelson and Heidi Freeby are not seeking reelection and newcomers Bobbi Marck and Anthony Perkins submitted paperwork. All other incumbents in Beaver Dam’s even-numbered districts are seeking re-election and are running unopposed.

In Columbus, incumbent Ian Grey is running again but Michael Clark is not and there will be no one on the ballot for that District Three seat. There will also be no one on the ballot in Columbus’ District Two as incumbent Amy Roelke was drawn out of her district and is not running in her new district.

In Fox Lake, incumbent Mayor Tom Bednarek is running unopposed, along with aldermen Dan Ault and Dennis Linke. Appointed incumbent Darrel Pollash declined to run in Ward One and Bruce Harned will be on the ballot.
