Few New Faces On Local Ballots in April Elections

Fox Point-Bayside and Nicolet School Districts only elections to see challengers.

Tuesday day was the final day to file paperwork to get on the April 3 ballot. Both Fox Point and Bayside have two trustee positions up for grabs without any challengers; in the school board races, Fox Point-Bayside and Nicolet are the only districts with a challenger so far. Maple Dale-Indian Hill has a deadline of 5 p.m. Friday for those interested to file for candidacy.

Here's a look at how things stack up:

Nicolet School Board

The Nicolet School Board has two positions up for grabs. Jennifer Peltz has not filed to run, but two challengers have — Melody Halstrom, 777 W. Dean Rd., and Libby Gutterman, 8025 N. Beach Dr. Marilyn Franklin, 7870 N. Regent Rd., has been a board member since 1988 and is the School Board president. She has filed for re-election.

Board members serve three-year terms and are paid $1,000 annually.

Fox Point-Bayside School Board

Two seats are on the ballot for the Fox Point-Bayside School Board. Incumbent Debbie Friberg, 6475 N. Santa Monica Blvd. has filed for re-election, and a new candidate has surfaced, Eilene Stevens, 8576 N. Pelham Pkwy.

Terms are three years with no salary.

Bayside Village Board

No new challengers have surfaced to take on long-time Bayside Village Board trustees Daniel Muchin, 411 E. Ravine Baye Rd., and James Petersen, 1152 W. Jonathan Ln.

Board members serve three-year terms and are paid $1,200 annually.
