Longtime Northern Ozaukee School Board incumbent Kendall Thistle lost his Town of Fredonia seat to challenger Scott Szczerbinski in Tuesday’s spring election.
Szczerbinski, N5355 Lorraine Ct., who was making his first bid for elected office, unofficially received 1,164 votes to Thistle’s 684.
Thistle has been on the board since 1999 and was involved in protracted litigation with the district over flooding on his property.
Fellow incumbent William “Bob” Rathsack topped challenger Patricia Barrie for the Village of Fredonia seat on the board, 1,116 to 664.
Rathsack, 207 Meadowbrook Dr., was appointed to the board last year following the resignation of Steve Baumeister.
Barrie was making her first bid at elected office. She finished second to Rathsack in a three-way primary race for the board seat in February.
The election also formalized the departure of Francis Kleckner from the board representing the Town of Belgium.
Kleckner served on the board since 1985, but did not seek re-election.
Daniel Large, 1398 Hwy. A, was the only candidate for the position. He garnered 1,618 votes.
Incumbent Rick Hamm, 4365 Blueberry Rd., the only candidate for the Town of Saukville seat, received 1,629 votes.
