Ripon School Board Race

All three incumbents running for the Ripon Area School Board survived Tuesday’s primary election. Thomas Stellmacher (343 votes), Sherry Page Muskavitch (261), and Amy Pollesch (495) were among the six candidates to receive enough votes to advance. Challengers Kim Mack (355), John Rieder (296), and Jennifer Vandebrink Dudzinski (348 votes) will face them in April for three seats on the board. Pollesch was recently appointed to the board to replace Daniel Zimmerman who left the board after he was appointed the state’s new Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary.  Barb Schultz (195) and Nicole Kutz Menard (211) didn’t receive enough votes to advance from the primary election.
