Three incumbents withstand spirited battle for Village Board seats
A trio of incumbent Village of Saukville trustees withstood a spirited challenge on Tuesday’s spring ballot and gained re-election.
Voters chose the incumbents — Mike Krocka, Joe Caban and Dave Maglio — over challenger Rhonda Kamenick.
Krocka was the top vote-getter, with 364 votes. He earned his sixth term as a trustee.
Maglio finished second with 327 votes, and Caban received 295 votes. With the vote, both gained their third terms on the board.
Kamenick, who was making her first bid at elected office, finished a close fourth with 277 votes.
Village President Barb Dickmann was unopposed in her bid for another term, and received 489 votes. She has held the position since 2003.
In the Town of Saukville, incumbent Treasurer Gloria Arredondo withstood a challenge by Darryl Habeck and gained a second term.
Arrendondo received 293 votes, and Habeck gained 143 votes.
Habeck still came away a winner, though, gaining election as town constable.
He received 324 votes, and was the only candidate on the ballot. Incumbent Steve Golec chose not to seek re-election.
The split results sidesteps the issue of whether Habeck would be allowed to serve both town offices.
Also on the town ballot, incumbent Town Chairman Barb Jobs and supervisors Kate Smallish and Curt Rutkowski were unopposed in their bids for re-election.
Jobs received 372 votes, Smallish 302 votes and Rutkowski 291 votes.
