At least three members of the Kewaunee County Board have decided not to run for re-election in the spring.
Supervisors Larry Kirchman, Dennis Cravillion and Linda Sinkula have submitted declarations of non-candidacy. Incumbents have until 5 p.m. Dec. 22 to let the public know if they have decided not to seek another term.
Twelve of the 20 supervisors have stated their intentions to run again, and as of Monday four had not confirmed a decision either way: Christopher Rasmussen, Ron Paider, John Pagel and Virginia Haske.
Four newcomers have begun the process of getting on the ballot. Frank Madzarevic has already filed his nomination papers as a challenger for the seat now held by Douglas Doell, and Kenneth Secor is circulating papers for Cravillion’s district. Two people, Richard Schleis and Aaron Augustian, have expressed an interest in Sinkula’s seat on the board.
Residents must be 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen and nomination papers must include a minimum of 20 valid signatures from residents within the candidate’s district.
Kewaunee County Clerk Jamie Annoye encourages those interested in running for a seat on the Kewaunee County Board of Supervisors to contact her office as soon as possible.
The deadline to turn in completed nomination papers is Tuesday, Jan. 2. The Kewaunee County Clerk’s Office, 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee, usually is open 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. , but in observance of Christmas and New Year’s Day, government offices will be closed Dec. 25-27 and Jan. 1.
