Spring Primary Election Day is Today; Polls Open 7 AM to 8 PM
Today (Tuesday) is the Spring Primary election, with voters casting their ballots to decide which candidates will advance to the April election in a number of local races.
Races on the ballot in the City of Fond du Lac include ones for Fond du Lac City Council, Fond du Lac School Board and which two candidates will compete for a judgeship on the Fond du lac County Circuit Court.
In the Fond du Lac City Council race, 11 candidates are running for three open seats on the council. Dan Degner is the lone incumbent in the race, and is joined by Lawrence Foster, Thom Strizek, Kenneth Cassaday, Tiffany Brault, Brett Zimmerman, Keith Heisler, Misty Gedlinske, Ben Huizenga, Patrick Mullen and Nakiah Johnson on today’s ballot. The top six candidates advance to the general election.
In the Fond du Lac School Board race, seven candidates are running for three open seats on the board. Incumbents Susan Jones, Linda Uselmann and Antonio Godfrey Sr. are joined by challengers Brittany Hoerth, Joe Guyette, Mark Henschel and Todd Schreiter. The top six candidates also advance to the spring election.
The top two candidates of four running for Fond du Lac County Circuit Court Judge will advance to the spring election. Dawn Sabel, Laura Lavey, Catherine Block, and Andrew Christenson are on today’s ballot, with the winner in April’s election assuming the seat held by Judge Richard Nuss, who is retiring after nearly 20 years on the bench.
Voters today will also narrow the field of candidates running for State Superintendent of Public Instruction from seven to two, with the top two candidates advancing to the April 6th general election. Included in that race is Fond du Lac High School teacher Joe Fenrick.
