Chiaverotti captures second term in Muskego mayoral race
Defeats challenger Dickman again by winning 58 percent of vote
Muskego — Muskego Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti retained her seat for a second three-year term in Tuesday's spring election balloting that had a voter turnout of 30 percent.
Chiaverotti captured 58 percent of vote winning over challenger Scott Dickman.
"I want to thank all my supporters," Chiaverotti said on election night. "You can't succeed without a lot of supporters."
What turned the election her way was probably her track record, Chiaverotti said.
"I think my experience. They know me, I've been around a long time and people know me," she said.
The unofficial vote totals are:
Kathy Chiaverotti (i) 2,851
Scott Dickman 2,076
The results won't be final until the Board of Canvassers meets after the NOW deadline.
Also on Tuesday, the two aldermanic incumbents also survived challenges. In District 1, Alderman Robert Wolfe captured 586 votes to challenger Randall Hojnacki's 326. In District 3, Neil Borgman won handily over Tom Reck with 619 votes to Reck's 222.
In District 5 where Alderman Dan Soltysiak did not seek re-election, John Engelhardt won the opportunity to represent the district with 424 votes to opponent Jim Gage's 345.
Aldermanic terms are for two years.
In the Muskego-Norway School board race, newcomer Chris Buckmaster and incumbent Robert Bohmann who was appointed to the board only a months ago won three-year terms. Incumbent Dean Strom came in third and will serve the year remaining on the term of Mike Syerdynski who resigned last year.
The unofficial vote totals were 3,040 for Buckmaster, 2,903 for Bohmann and 2,755 for Strom.
