The results are in from Tuesday’s spring general election, and two challengers won seats in the two contested local races.
- In the Second District aldermanic race, challenger Tim Backes and incumbent Ray Navarro took the top two spots, unseating incumbent Pat Stoner.
- For South Milwaukee School Board, challenger Angie DeFord and incumbent Jon Shelenske won, defeating challenger Steven Champagne and incumbent David Maass.
- Jill Underly (Wisconsin State Superintendent) and Katie Kegel (Milwaukee County Circuit Judge) also won their contested races in South Milwaukee.
Turnout was just over 20%.
Congratulations to all of tonight’s winners, and thank you for stepping up to serve your community during these challenging times. I look forward to working with all of you.
I offer my deep thanks to two longstanding public servants: Pat Stoner and David Maass.
Pat and Dave: You helped build the strong foundation upon which future city and school leaders will build. Your decades of public service will not be forgotten, your contributions not taken for granted.
I have deep respect for both of you personally and professionally, and you leave a legacy of dedicated public service that will be difficult to match. You made our community stronger, and better. Be proud of that.
You will be missed, and you have my deep gratitude.
