Today was the deadline for submitting paperwork to be placed on the ballot. Here in Mequon, the only contested municipal race will be for Mayor.
Ald. Rob Strzelczyk will be running unopposed for reelection in the First District. He was first elected in 2013 and was reelected in 2016.
Jeffrey Hansher will be running unopposed in the Fourth District. I currently hold that seat.
Congratulations to both Ald, Strzelczyk and Mr. Hansher. I look forward to working with both of you.
There will be a total of four candidates (including me) running for Mayor. Therefore, there will be a primary election on February 19 to narrow the field to two candidates. The general election will be held on April 2.
I welcome the other candidates to the race. Our system of government works best when voters are given a choice.
I intend to run on my record, the facts and what I intend to accomplish. I hope all of the candidates have the same plan. Too many recent elections have devolved into personal attacks. Too many candidates talk about their opponents instead of discussing what they plan to do for the City. In all of my elections, I have avoided that kind of campaigning.
I seek your support. Together, we will ensure Mequon continues to be the great place we love. We can keep taxes low and have great police, fire and ambulance departments, maintain roads, improve city services and plan for Mequon’s future.
