School Board member Lisa Voisin announces she will not run again

Time constraints created by promotion would create conflicts

Nov. 16, 2006

Citing changes in her work schedule, Muskego-Norway School Board member Lisa Voisin announced this week that she has decided not to run for re-election in April.

Voisin, who served one term, said a recent job promotion created several time conflicts. Voisin emphasized that her decision had nothing to do with the performance of the board, but rather had to do with her personal life.

"I don't feel like I can put the time and effort needed to do the kind of job I want to do," Voisin said referring to her School Board position. "It was a hard decision because I feel we're doing some exciting things in the district."

Voisin's position and Rick Petfalski's spot will be on the ballot in April when both terms end.

Petfalski said this week that he intends to run again.

The School Board positions, which require a three-year commitment, pay an annual salary of $3,924.

Those interested running for School Board will need to file a declaration of candidacy and a campaign registration statement at the Muskego-Norway School District's Educational Service Center, S87 W18763 Woods Road, on or before 5 p.m. Jan. 2. The position is open to any Muskego-Norway School District resident who is 18 years old or older.
