Full slate running for school board posts here|
School boards are apparently a hot political topic this election season.
As of Tuesday’s 5 p.m. filing deadline, races had emerged for four seats on the Antigo school board and two out of three available seats at White Lake.
Only Elcho will see a quiet spring election, with incumbents Dave Visser, the board president, and Bob Jensen running unopposed for new three-year terms.
The election will be held on April 1.
With four open seats on the nine-member board, the spring election promises to be pivotal for the future of the Antigo school district.
Clark Palmer, 1301 Fifth Ave., who was appointed to the board last spring to fill the term of the late Miles Stanke, is the only incumbent seeking re-election.
Joining him on the ballot will be Karen Koeppel, W67953 Elmwood Rd.; Tara Fermanich Guelzow, 1257 N. Superior St.; Gail Zaverousky, N4256 Hwy. 52; Jeanne Long, N697 Hwy. D; Roy Dieck, N30000 Orchard Rd.; Scott Jensema, W10095 Mary Lane; and Dr. Patrick McKenna, N7641 Pence Lake Rd., Deerbrook.
Dieck, a former board member, Jensema, McKenna and Long, who previously was on the Bowler school board, all applied for the school board vacancy caused by the resignation of Dr. Karl Niedermann in September. That seat will remain open until the spring election due to a board deadlock on naming an appointment.
Guelzow ran for the board in 2013. Koeppel and Zaverousky are newcomers.
Incumbents Joe Kretz and Beth Bockes declined to seek re-election.
The term of office for three school board members is three years. The lowest vote-getter among the four winners will receive a one year term.
There will be races for White Lake board of education positions representing the town of Evergreen and the district at-large.
In the town of Evergreen, incumbent Lewis Bowman will be challenged by Margaret Pratt, W3924 Shepherd Rd., White Lake.
At-large member Carol Blawatt will be challenged by Dave Krochalk, 746 S. Shore St., White Lake, who previously sought the position.
Running unopposed for town of Wolf River representative is incumbent Len Schneider.
All seats are for three-year terms.
