Race shaping up

for School Board

New Berlin — There could be a race for the two seats on the School Board in the April election, while on the city side only incumbents have filed so far.

As of noon Monday both School Board incumbents said they would run, although only one has filed nomination papers. But joining them in vying for the board will be Amy Crosby, 3959 S. Victoria Court.

Of the two School Board incumbents whose terms will expire in April, School Board President David Maxey, 17240 W. Rogers Drive, has filed to run again. Maxey is finishing his second three-year term on the board.

Art Marquardt, who is completing his third term and has said he intends to seek a fourth term, has not yet filed candidacy papers as of press deadline.

On the city side, the terms of Laura Karvala, 14360 W. Wilbur Drive, District 2; Ken Harenda in District 4; Dennis Horbinski, 4227 S. Coventry Court, District 6; and John Fillar, 15905 W. Armour Ave., District 7, will expire. All have filed to run except for Harenda, who said he intends to seek re-election.

The filing deadline is 5 p.m. Jan. 7 for city and school candidates, with aldermanic candidates filing at the City Hall, 3805 S. Casper Drive, and School Board candidates at the district office, 4333 S. Sunnyslope Road.

Mayoral race in April,

but quiet at School Board

Muskego — Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti will face opposition in April as she seeks her second three-year term.

As of noon Monday, Scott Dickmann, W17945 Muskego Drive, had filed candidacy papers. Chiaverotti, W19857 Holly Patch Court, also has filed to run.

This will be the second matchup between the two — Dickmann ran for mayor in 2011 but was eliminated by 18 votes in the primary race, finishing behind Luke Hudock who went on to the general election.

So far, the two aldermen whose two-year terms will expire in April are the only candidates to file. They are Robert Wolfe, W13573 Fleetwood Road, in District 1, and Neil Borgman, W16972 Briargate Lane, in District 3.

In District 5, where Alderman Dan Soltysiak announced he would not seek re-election, James Gage, W20177 Monterey Drive, has filed to run.

There are three openings on the Muskego-Norway School Board, with Jim Schaefer announcing that he would not seek re-election.

As of noon Monday, only Robert Bohmann, 25800 Auburn Court, Wind Lake, who was appointed to fill a vacancy, had filed. Incumbent Dean Strom said he intends to seek another term.

The filing deadline for city and School Board posts is 5 p.m. Jan. 7, with city candidates filing at the City Hall, S8200 Racine Ave., and School Board candidates at the district office, W18763 Woods Road.

Shop with a Cop held

for families in need

Muskego — For the fourth year in a row, the Muskego Police Department has partnered with the local Walmart store and the Muskego Woman's Club to offer needy families the chance to "Shop With A Cop."

Under the program, police officers take children from those families to shop at Walmart, S6530 Moorland Road, for Christmas presents for their families.

The store sponsored the program and provided the money used to buy the presents.

Muskego police officers volunteered on their own time Saturday.

Volunteers from the Muskego Woman's Club then helped the children wrap the presents.

In some cases, these presents may be the only ones the family sees this Christmas.

To wrap up the day, the police officers then treated the children to lunch.
