There will be at least two new faces on the Kewaunee City Council as municipalities statewide hit the halfway point to its nomination papers deadline. District 2 alderperson Jeff Dworak and District 4 alderperson David Kuehl will step down from their seats in April after filing their non-candidacy papers this month. Evan Gibbs and Wendy Shelton have taken out nomination papers to replace Dworak with Shelton already turning in the necessary signatures. Richard Taylor is the only person to take out nomination papers to replace Kuehl and he has already returned them. District 1 alderperson Arthur Schiller is seeking to keep his seat on the city council and could face a challenge from former mayor John Blaha, who has already returned his paperwork. District 3 alderperson Joe Mills is also seeking to keep his spot and could have an opponent in Robin Nelson, who has returned her signatures. In Door and Kewaunee counties’ other two cities, Algoma has had no one take out nomination papers, including incumbents John Pabich, Jacque Wiese, Mitch Groessl, and Lee Dachelet. All of Sturgeon Bay’s incumbents up for re-election, which include Helen Bacon, Gary Nault, Kirsten Reeths, and Dan Williams, have indicated they will run again. With the spring election scheduled for April 6th, nomination papers need to be returned to municipal offices by January 5th.
