In the Tuesday, April 6 election, Carol McCormick was reelected unopposed to represent District 1 on the Common Council, as was Brienne Brown for District 3. All other reports in this article are unofficial. The race for Council in District 5 was a very close call, with incumbent Gregory Majkrzak’s 62 votes only a two vote margin over challenger Neil Hicks. On the other hand, there was a decisive margin in the Council’s at-large position, with Lisa Dawsey Smith garnering 708 votes to Dan Machalik’s 328.
Maryann Zimmerman and Larry Kachel were apparent victors for the two open seats on the school board, ousting incumbent Tom Ganser. Kelly Davis chose not to run for reelection, and Andrea M. Svec, who had withdrawn from active pursuit of a seat, still received 299 votes. The tallies, broken down by counties, are shown below.
|Andrea M. Svec||224||36||39||299|
