Placeholder Image

Platteville Ald. Steve Becker and challenger Michael Denn advanced to the April 2 election for one of two Common Council seats.

Denn received 305 votes and Becker 205 in the race for Becker’s at-large seat in the Feb. 19 primary election.

Challenger Barbara Stockhausen finished third, with 160 votes. Stockhausen will be on the ballot April 2, however, running against District 1 Ald. Mike Dalecki, the council president.

There will be two statewide races April 2. Incumbent Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack is opposed by Marquette University Prof. Ed Fallone. Incumbent Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers is opposed by state Rep. Don Pridemore (R–Hartford).

Villages: Village of Potosi President Frank Fiorenza is opposed by challenger Jack Mest. The race for three Village Board positions includes incumbents Arlyn Weber, Joyce Weber and Tom Droessler and challenger Karen Marie Pitzen for two-year terms.

Village of Dickeyville President Tammy Kunkel is opposed by village trustee Becky Kienzli for a two-year term. Two incumbents, Kienzli and Don Schultz, and Matthew Gantenbein are running for the three two-year Village Board seats. Incumbent Amy Ginter is not running for reelection.

All Village of Belmont incumbents — president Brad Bockhop and trustees Tim Richardson, Kay Austin and Jason Brecker — are unopposed. Austin is running for her first full term after she was appointed to replace a trustee who moved out of the village.

The Village of Rewey will have its caucus Monday night. Incumbents are president Paul Simon and trustees Frank Naeger and Kevin Lyght.

Village of Livingston President Thomas Brown and trustees Rosemary Gluege, Kimberly Loeffelholz and Debra France are unopposed on the ballot.

School boards: The Iowa–Grant School Board has four seats up for election, but one — Area 1, Linden — has no candidate after incumbent Peggy Barton filed a declaration of noncandidacy. The Area 2 seat, in Cobb, will have two challengers, Renee Linscheid and Shawn Meuer, after incumbent Kris Meuer also filed a declaration of noncandidacy. The Area 6 seat, Montfort and Livingston at large, has one candidate, Fred Divall, after incumbent Brian Nodolf filed for noncandidacy.

In Area 3, Montfort, incumbent Darla Burton will be running for a one-year term after she was appointed to fill a board vacancy. The other three seats are three-year terms.

Two incumbents and two challengers will run for three seats on the Potosi School Board. Incumbents Craig Bierman and Peggy Udelhoven are opposed by challengers Stephen Pluemer and Tricia Reuter for three-year terms. Incumbent Patty Post is not running for reelection.

The Belmont School Board has one announced candidate for its two available seats. Incumbent Shawn Dailey is running, but incumbent Jared Reuter filed a declaration of non-candidacy, and no other candidate filed to run. The top write-in candidate April 2 will get the other available school board seat.

The three seats on the Platteville School Board will also be up for election, but only the three incumbents — school board president Brian Miesen, Nancy Bongers and Abdulkhair Masoom — will be on the ballot.
