Three supervisors deciding not to run for re-election and two challengers highlight the first week of people showing their interest in running for the Kewaunee County Board. District 2 supervisor Larry Kirchman, District 7 supervisor Dennis Cravillion, and District 11 supervisor Linda Sinkula have all given their notice of non-candidacy. Challenger Frank Madzarevic took out nomination papers to run against Douglas Doell in District 8, while Richard A. Schleis will look to replace Sinkula in District 11. Ten incumbents have taken out their nomination papers, with Patrick Benes of District 17 the only one to have turned in his to the clerk’s office. December 1 was the first day to circulate nomination papers and the filing deadline is January 2.
