Nomination papers are still being taken out less than a week before they are due back to city halls in Door and Kewaunee County.
In Sturgeon Bay, John Lodl has taken papers out to run for the District 2 seat being vacated by Ron Vandertie. He joins Robert Starr, David Hayes, and Dawn Goodban in the race. While Richard Wiesner looks to be running for another term in District 4 unopposed, District 6 still has three people in the running: incumbent Stewart Fett and challengers Seth Wiederanders, and Lauri Fish.
In Kewaunee, James Kleiman III has taken papers out to run for mayor. Kleiman joins current Mayor Sandi Christman, council member John Griffith, and Joe Mills in the race for the city’s top spot. Kewaunee is still in need of people to run in District 2 and 4 after Diane Jirtle and Don Kickbusch returned their notice of non-candidacy.
A vacancy could be in store for Algoma as well, which still has not had anyone take out nomination papers in District 2.
While some office may be closed Friday and Monday for the holiday this weekend, prospective candidates still have until the end of the business day on January 2 to turn in the required paperwork.
