There will be competition for two South Milwaukee Common Council seats and the School Board this spring.
Paperwork from perspective candidates was due by close of business Tuesday, and here is an early look at your April 7 ballot …
- South Milwaukee City Council: There will be competition in the First and Second Districts. In the First District, Frank Disco Gratke will challenge incumbent Ald. Craig Maass and Frank Van Dusen III. In the Second District, challengers Michael A. Johnson and Larry Pagelsdorf will challenge incumbents R. Patrick Stoner and Ramon Navarro. There will be no ballot competition for aldermen in the Third (Joe Bukowski and Lisa Pieper) and Fourth (Peggy Clark and David Bartoshevich) Districts.
- South Milwaukee School Board: There will be three candidates for two seats. Challengers Jeffrey Dess and Jon Shelenske will compete against incumbent David Maass.
Candidates in the city and school elections are seeking three-year terms.
I’ll keep you posted as these races unfold.
