Rathsack, Barrie are top vote-getters in race for village’s School Board seat
The ballot is finally set for the April 5 spring election in the Northern Ozaukee School District, following a three-way primary election Tuesday.
The top vote-getter for the Village of Fredonia seat on the board was Bob Rathsack, with a tentative count of 350 votes.
That total was 61% of the votes cast.
Rathsack was appointed to the board last year, to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Stephen Baumeister.
He will be joined on the ballot by Patricia Barrie, 118 S. Milwaukee St., who received 129 votes in the primary.
Village resident Albert Klinter, 228 N. Wilson St., finished third in the primary with 91 votes.
Both Barrie and Klinter also applied to fill Baumeister’s seat on the board.
The spring ballot will also feature a race between incumbent Kendall Thistle, N5549 Hwy. 57, and challenger Scott Szczerbinski, N5355 Loraine Ct., for the Town of Fredonia seat on the board.
Newcomer Daniel Large, 398 Hwy. A, is the only declared candidate for the Town of Belgium post which has been held by longtime incumbent Francis Kleckner.
Incumbent Rick Hamm, 4365 Blueberry Rd., is also the only candidate for the Town of Saukville seat on the board.
