INTERNET EXCLUSIVE - Who's running for office in the city?
Fesenmaier doesn't file nomination papers for re-election

January 06, 2011

All but one race appears to be set for the upcoming spring elections in the city of Lake Geneva.

In order to be placed on the ballot, nomination papers, including signatures, were due Tuesday Jan. 4, at 5 p.m.

However, Second District incumbent Mary Jo Fesenmaier did not file for re-election or noncandidacy. That means the filing of nomination papers for that district runs until Friday, Jan. 7, at 5 p.m. for anyone except Fesenmaier.

Former Plan Commission member and candidate for the Second District, Alan Kupsik, has filed his papers to run for alderman in the district. According to City Clerk Jeremy Reale, Fesenmaier could still file to run as an official write-in candidate.

The Fourth District will require a February primary because three are vying for the spot, including incumbent Don Tolar, former candidate Terry O'Neill and newcomer Elizabeth Chappell.

The First District battle will be between incumbent Ellyn Kehoe and former candidate Bill Cousino Jr.

Incumbents Arleen Krohn (Third District) and Henry Sibbing (municipal judge) will run unopposed in the April election.

All elected offices are two-year terms.
