City of Oconomowoc voters will have four contested local races to consider when voting on April 3.
Oconomowoc Common Council
Within the city, with four aldermanic posts being filled, only one of the four incumbents, Cathleen Slattery, Robert Morgan, Jimi Hall, and Lora Mae Cochrane, faces opposition. Cochrane, a long-time member of the Common Council (District 2) faces Leroy Watson.
Hall is not seeking re-election because he is moving from the city and state. Only one candidate, James Preston, is seeking Hall’s District 1 post. Preston filed yesterday, the last day for filing papers so he will be on the ballot unopposed.
OASD Board of Education
Four candidates are seeking one of three seats on the Oconomowoc Area School District Board of Education. Incumbents John Griswold, Don Wiemer, and Dave Guckenberger will face off against challenger Lisa Arenas. View companion article.
Waukesha County Board
City voters will also select a new Waukesha County Board Supervisor on April 3. Robert Kolb and Cathleen Slattery are both seeking the seat, created after the recent county-wide re-districting. See companion article.
Lake County Municipal Court
The only other local contest features incumbent Lake County Municipal Court Judge Douglas Stern and veteran municipal court prosecutor Tim Kay.
Oconomowoc Mayor Jim Daley, who filed his papers on Tuesday after announcing last year that he would run again for his post, is unopposed.
