Tuesday was the deadline for anyone turning in nomination papers to run for area city council races this spring. In Algoma, the incumbents Bruce Charles, Jacque Wiese, Mitch Groessl, and Lee Dachelet have all turned in their nomination papers with no challengers on the ballot.
In Sturgeon Bay, District 1 incumbent Kelly Catarozoli and former alderperson Danny Wiegand have turned in nomination papers. Incumbent David Ward and Martha Beller have returned nomination papers in the race for District 3. Judy Dobbins and Brian Peterson turned in papers for District 5, while Laurel Hauser and Joe McMahon from District 7 will have their names appear on April’s ballot. None of the races in Sturgeon Bay will require a primary.
In Kewaunee, incumbents Arthur Schiller, John G riffith and David Kuehl will run again for their current seats in the 1st, 3rd, and 4th aldermanic districts respectively. No one turned in papers for Kewaunee’s 2nd aldermanic district after incumbent Jeff Dworak returned his Declaration for Non-Candidacy last month. The spring election will be held on Tuesday, April 4.
